Colored Braces in Atlanta, GA

Selecting colored bands makes wearing braces lot more fun. Even patients who are a little blue about their treatment smile when they think about designing their own look with colored bands for braces. Patients who live in Atlanta turn to Dr. Ruchir Patel and Dr. Kal Thakkar and the staff at iClear Orthodontics located in Alpharetta, Roswell, and Kennesaw to help them rock the latest braces colors and styles.

What Are Colored Braces?

Rubber bands or ligature bands are often used to secure brackets to wires on conventional braces, which apply pressure to move your teeth into place. In the past the bands were metal colored, however, the bands are now available in a wide variety of colors allowing you to personalize your braces.

Benefits of Colored Braces

Even if you aren’t thrilled about the idea of wearing braces, colored bands make wearing braces a lot more fun. Being able to choose the colored ties for your braces helps you look forward to your orthodontic appointments since your bands get replaced during every visit.

Use Colors on Your Braces to Reveal Your Personality and Style

You are one-of-a-kind, and now your braces can be too. Colored bands come in a huge variety of colors. You can match them to your clothes, your school colors or your favorite sports team. It is just a matter of how creative you can you be with your colored ties.

How Are Braces with Colors Attached?

Colored bands are used on metal brackets that are cemented to your teeth. Once the brackets are attached to the teeth, wires are attached to slowly push your teeth into place. The colored bands are then used to stabilize the wires. A gate is sometimes also used to hold the wires in place, but if this is the case bands can still be attached to the gate.

What Braces Colors Should You Choose?

When it comes to picking the perfect band colors, there is no right or wrong selection.  It’s best to go with what you like. Here are a few pointers to help you get started:

  • Brighten your teeth – Bright colors make your teeth look whiter. Lighter hues, such as yellow and white, may make your teeth look darker.
  • Celebrate the holidays – Orange, white, yellow and black make a perfect Halloween mix!
  • Glow-in-the-dark – Going to a school dance? Glow-in-the-dark bands will help you get the party started.
  • Root for your team – Show your school pride or cheer for your favorite team.
  • Match your clothes – Coordinating braces are always in style.

Keep in mind that availability and color options change. Be sure to ask whether any new colors have arrived. Colors that are typically in-stock include gold, black, silver, gray, blue, green, red, orange, yellow, purple and pink.

You’ll also have the opportunity to select new colors each visit, so there’s no risk in trying something new. If you end up picking colors you don’t love, they’ll be history in a few weeks.

How Much Do Colored Braces Cost in Atlanta, GA?

The cost of braces treatment varies based on the severity of your malocclusion, the length of your treatment, whether any additional devices are required and other factors. There is no additional cost for using colored bands on your braces. The cost of colored bands is included in your overall braces treatment.

Dental insurance sometimes covers a portion or the full cost of braces, so it is important to check your policy’s coverage. If you have Flexible Spending Account dollars available through your employer, your pre-tax dollars can be applied to the cost of braces.

To give all patients access to quality orthodontic treatment, iClear Orthodontics offers many payment plans to help make braces more affordable. iClear Orthodontics offers interest-free in-house financing which divides the total cost of treatment into reasonable monthly payments for the duration of your treatment.

Options also exist to extend payments beyond your treatment period. In addition to traditional credit cards, iClear Orthodontics accepts CareCredit® cards that extend financing up to 60 months with a reduced APR and fixed monthly payments. With OrthoFi, you are able to select the down payment and ongoing monthly payment amounts.

"I am another happy patient at iClear Orthodontics! I am in invisalign treatment and can already see changes in 4 months! I have been to both Roswell and Alpharetta locations and they are very contemporary and up to date! 5 stars all the way!" - Emily Thomas
"Dr. Patel and his staff are incredible! We (I and my 12 year old daughter) recommend his orthodontic services to everyone we know when they say they need orthodontics done right. The staff at his office is friendly, and they know how to answer questions, which goes a long way toward feeling comfortable with an orthodontist. Our 12 year old child now has a beautiful smile, and it’s all thanks to his excellent care. He never recommends orthodontic treatment unless it's needed, and that really makes a difference. Our 2nd…" - Kimberly T
"Dr. Thakkar and the staff at iClear Orthodontics are completely professional, from start to finish. They explain the process, the treatments, and even go over our insurance with us so that we know how our claims will be handled. There were no questions that didn’t have an answer, and by the time we left his office, I was sure that I wouldn’t want to send my kids to anyone else for the services he offers" - Justin D. Thomson
"We love visiting their Kennesaw location... Great staff, very pleasant and honest orthodontist and our 10 year old loves Dr Patel! Only issue we have sometimes is traffic at 5pm... We try to schedule our appointments around 3:30 to beat the Chastain Rd traffic." - Karen Houstin
