Normally, you might think that the words “braces” and “style” don’t go together, right? Wrong! Braces can be a fashion statement much like any other accessory, it’s just how you dress them up.

Here are a few hacks our orthodontists recommend to help you feel confident and stylish with your braces.

Match your elastics to your lifestyle.

Matching your elastics with to the colours of your favourite sports team, or to suit an upcoming event, an outfit you have planned, whatever it is, can be a great way to incorporate your braces into your personal style.

Go clear.

Feeling a little overwhelmed by the choices of multiple colours of elastics? Another option is to choose clear elastics instead. These can help mute your braces and make them less flashy than bright colours.

Look to your favourite celebs to see what they’ve done.

You’ve seen celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Cindy Crawford, and Emma Watson wear braces throughout their careers. Why not look to them for inspiration? Take a cue from the stars!


 Our favourite method of dressing for your braces starts with confidence, of course. Treat your braces like the old saying goes: “If you got it, flaunt it!”. A smile is one of the best accessories out there.
