What the color of the rubber bands on your braces mean

December 28th, 2015

Regular, metal braces aren’t always a pain and hassle. They can actually be accessorized in a way to creatively express a specific style, mood, or outfit. For example, maybe you want to show your school spirit and put on rubber bands that match your school colors. Whatever the case may be, different colors can represent different things, so here’s our chart on what each rubber band color means.

Red

You’re intense and forward thinking, and that you won’t back down no matter how big the challenge. Red is also the color of the heart, so red rubber bands indicating that you’re a caring, loving person.

Blue

Blue means you’re chill – as cool as a cucumber. You’re one cool customer, as the saying goes. You’re relaxed and calm, even when your mom says you can’t chew any gum or eat popcorn because of your braces.

Green

Look at a traffic light and green means go, right? So you’re the type of person who’s always on the move. Go, go, go! It also means you’re generous and kind. Green is the color of nature and spring, so it says you love Mother Earth. Perhaps you even recycle. Green is the color of good luck.

Orange

You’re daring and wild, flamboyant and fun. Orange may indicate you’re an artist or a drama student. It says you have a big personality and that you don’t care what other people think about you. However, orange is also the color of balance and energy. And being flamboyant and fun takes a lot of energy!

Purple

You’re the creative type, for sure. You beat to a different drummer and think outside the box. It says you’re mysterious. Purple is the color of royalty, and when you wear your purple rubber bands you are royally cool.

Color Combinations

What if you can’t choose just one color? Well, you can decorate your teeth with alternating colors. You can choose the colors of your favorite sports team or holiday colors like red and green. If you’re still stumped as to what colors to choose, ask Dr. Brian Chamberlain or a member of our SuperSmile Orthodontics team.
