Colored Braces in Virginia Beach, VA

Have you noticed different colors on someone’s braces when they smile? Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser offer colored braces to children, teens, and even adults living in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake, including residents of Virginia’s eastern shore, who require orthodontics but want to add some individuality to their appearance.

What are Colored Braces?

When someone gets metal braces, they often require elastic ties to secure the arch wire to the brackets. A way to make the orthodontic process more fun is to use colored bands for braces. They give each patient some creativity when choosing the colors that they want.

Why Do People Want to Wear Colored Braces?

Wearing braces may seem a little daunting as the process begins. The colored ties for braces give patients an opportunity to make their orthodontics “their own.” At each appointment they can choose a single color or mix a couple to wear until they decide to change the colors out for another one.

How Do Colored Braces Work?

Colored braces work just like other orthodontics with arch wires in that they gradually straighten teeth as the wires are periodically adjusted. The colored bands for braces secure the arch wires on the brackets. At each adjustment, they are removed and replaced with new bands.

Can I Pick My Own Colors?

Of course, you can pick your own colors. We like it when patients get creative. You can choose colors for an upcoming holiday, your school colors, or even your favorite colors. The best part is that you can change your colors at your next appointment. If you are unsure of what colors, we can help you decide.

How Much Do Colored Braces Cost?

The colored ties for braces do not add any extra cost to your orthodontic treatment as they are part of the entire investment. The cost for orthodontics varies with each patient based on the treatment needed, the type of appliances used, and the length of time needed to achieve the desired results. We work with most insurance companies to determine your out-of-pocket costs prior to beginning your treatment.
