Are you self-conscious about being photographed with your new braces? There is nothing to be embarrassed about. Lots of people have them. It’s sort of a rite of passage. And, there are plenty of ways to make it fun. So, be confident and enjoy your pics by not hiding your smile.

Be Fun and Confident

You become more attractive and appealing to others if you just embrace your situation. So, own it! We have all colors of rubber bands that you can mix and match. Pick your favorite color, or change them out for every occasion and opportunity. How about the holidays? Red for Valentine’s Day, green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange for Halloween, etc. On Independence day you can wear red, white and blue! If you’re feeling particularly wild, neon colors and glow-in-the-dark bands are also available.

There is Always Photoshop

If you still hate seeing your braces in pics, there is always the miracle of photo editing software. A pic editor like photoshop, or even a simple paint program, can easily erase your dental work. All you need to do is zoom in on your teeth, pick the natural color with the dropper, and simply paint your braces away. You can even whiten them up a bit if you like, and give yourself a handlebar mustache for good measure.

The most important thing to focus upon is how good you’ll look after the orthodontic work is done. If you haven’t yet gotten your braces put in, be sure to discuss the options with us. There are some types of braces that are less visible than the traditional kind.
