Are you fretting about getting a photo while wearing your braces? Getting braces is a youthful rite of passage as common as riding a bike. So, there is no need to feel self-conscious about being seen with your braces. Decide now that you will embrace your braces and don’t even try to hide them. Be confident and arouse an attitude of fun! And, we have ways to help you find the fun in photos.

Stellar Selection of Rubber Bands

We literally have all the colors of the rainbow for you to choose from. Pick your favorite colors, mix and match, wear multiple colors. Change them out for every occasion. What about the holidays? Green for St. Patrick’s Day, red for Valentine’s Day, black and orange for Halloween, etc. On the 4th of July you can wear three colors: red, white and blue! If you’re feeling particularly wild, neon colors and glow-in-the-dark bands are also available.

If All Else Fails, Try Photo Editing

I you still don’t like the way they look in a pic, there is always Photoshop. Any photo-editing software can do the job of erasing metal mouth. Simply zoom in on your mouth, pick the natural tooth color with the dropper, and paint over the offending braces. Voilà! You’ve fixed the problem. Isn’t technology wonderful?

The important thing is to not let wearing braces make you become depressed about your appearance. Focus on the day when you get them taken off and how good you’ll look then!
