There are several colors of power chains available, depending on the types of braces you have. If you have clear braces, you will have power chains in black and clear, which means your teeth will be visible through the gap between the top and bottom of your braces. If you have Power Chain Colors braces you can choose from black, white, pink or blue power chains. The color of the chain also depends on whether you’re wearing traditional metal braces or Invisalign clear aligners.
It’s easy to find out what Power Chain Colors braces would suit you best. Check your teeth numbering chart, such as that below, or with a mirror. It also helps to have someone else check for you as well since it is hard to see yourself without proper lighting and angles. Note: The # next to each number denotes which wire is connected to that bracket.
As you might expect, white is by far one of the most popular tooth color options. White teeth are naturally attractive, but they also reveal any existing stains or yellowing. If you want to maintain a bright, white smile and can’t stand compromise, then you’ll be happiest with clear braces—all-ceramic brackets with plastic or metal wires—to align your teeth in about 6 months. You might hear these referred to as American brackets because that’s where clear braces were first developed and become increasingly popular during the 20th century. Although advancements have been made since then and other materials have entered into widespread use (particularly zirconia), there's still no substitute for clear ceramic when it comes to dental health and appearance.
Gold-colored braces aren’t that popular. They certainly make a statement, but some feel they’re more appropriate for Halloween than everyday life. Gold-colored braces may be fine as a fashion statement, but it’s probably not a good idea to have them on your teeth if you want to get jobs or connect with people on a professional level. If gold is still your go-to color, fear not; even though it isn’t one of the most popular choices, there are still several different types available. For example, gold colored brackets and wires can be used to create color contrast with other parts of your smile if you choose something bolder like pink or purple.
When you decide to purchase a Power Chain Bracelet, you’ll need to choose from either a Gold or Silver bracelet. Your choice will depend on your style preference, but it will also be determined by your personality. The majority of men and women prefer silver over gold; therefore, most retailers only carry silver bracelets. However, if you do want a gold bracelet—which is a good option for those who have an athletic build and like to wear yellow gold jewelry—you can easily find one online at major retailers. If you aren’t sure which color will look best on you, order both types and try them on to see which look better!
