What are Coloured Braces?

The elastic “modules” which are used to tie the archwire to brackets come in a variety of colours intended to making the wearing braces more fun and fashionable. This is a very popular style of braces especially amongst teenagers. The colours are usually used over metal braces, but they could be fitted over tooth-coloured braces too. These colours can be changed at every appointment, and you can go back to having no colours whenever you wish.
