Many teenagers wonder what they’ll look like with braces, and what colors of rubber bands will look best with their hair color and facial tone. Judging by the comments on this article about braces colors, I decided it would be a good idea to create a post with dozens of pictures of teenagers with braces so you can get a general idea of how you’ll look with braces.
As you take a look at the pictures below, you may notice that some people look confident with braces, and some people don’t. If you try to smile and look proud of your braces, people will see you as more confident, and you’ll likely enjoy having braces more. It all comes down to attitude.
Hopefully there’s someone here that looks similar to you!
