Choosing Your Color Philadelphia, PA

At Broad Street Braces, we offer a variety of options when it comes to aligning your teeth. Our traditional braces are still a popular choice for a large portion of our patients. They’ve been utilized to adjust teeth for over 100 years! Their reputation is good, and their results are solid!
While you sit back and enjoy the adjustment process and anticipate your awesome smile, you’ll have some decisions to make. One decision that is important to some of our patients is: “Which color bands should I choose this time?” Those colored bands are called ligatures. They are elastic and can be very colorful, however their primary purpose is not for your accessorizing purposes. Their function is to secure the arch wire in its place.
Here are a couple thoughts to consider when choosing which color you want:

  • Do you have any upcoming big events? If you’re participating in a big sporting event, why not show your team pride while sporting the team’s color every time you smile. Or, perhaps you have a formal event and you’ve planned the perfect outfit for. Wearing a coordinating color might WOW all those in attendance!
  • Have you ever heard of color psychology? It’s used a lot in marketing and branding. If you’re looking to make a statement or influence others, consider choosing a color carefully chosen to make the impression you’re looking for.

At Broad Street Braces, we do everything we can to make your alignment process as fun, pain-free and colorful as possible. We also offer braces options such as clear, self-ligating, and lingual braces. Book your appointment with us today to discover which option is right for your teeth alignment process. You’ll be happy with your brilliant smile along with our commitment to comfort, convenience and affordability.

I am pleased with this Orthodontist location because they are very prompt with appointments. It's never a long wait. The staff is kind and willing to fix misunderstandings quickly. They actually play relaxing music in the office. My favorite staff member is Trinh because she answers questions gracefully. Trinh always greets me with a smile. Glad I chose this dental office.

My mom received THE BEST service here. Consultations & visits were a breeze & the staff was always so kind. Their bilingual employee, Sara, was very helpful because my mom only speaks Spanish.

Many friends told me that Trinh always does a great job and I am very lucky today to have her put my braces on! They look great. I am looking forward to coming back for my second appoinment. The treatment coordinator, Rachel is very friendly and welcoming. She is awesome. I would recommend anyone who is interested in braces to come to Broad Street Braces. You would love Dr. Neil!
