Manufacturer/Vendor Color Rings

Hi!

I wanted to pass on a bit of knowledge I gained while researching braces and ligament elastics. I was able to look at my orthodontist's color wheel ring and got the name of the vendor he uses to order his elastics. I entered the information on Google and found the vendor's website. I managed to find their catalog in PDF form and a realistic color chart photographed with a camera to show differences in lighting to help me pick colors out before going to my appointments. I'm getting my braces tomorrow and am planning to get dark purple/lilac color as my very first color combination! It really helps to either look up the vendor online and either bookmark the page or print out the colors. The "realistic models" of color charts weren't really helpful since the colors aren't exactly the same and I was left still puzzled. Hope this helps!

Please bump this into the ligament color topic. I'm a bit new at this forum thing. Thanks!

This thread can't be "bumped" into another thread. Just re-post what you posted here.

I also posted a pic of my ortho's color palette in the ligature (not ligament - haha!) thread. Good luck to you!!

Dental jargon can be confusing sometimes! Thanks for the tip on how to move this to another topic.
