Even if you’re not all that happy about having to wear braces, selecting the color of your rubber bands is sure to make you smile. Whether you want to coordinate your braces with your latest outfits, express your inner creative side, or show some serious school spirit, “decorating” your mouth with colorful rubber bands can take away some of the self-consciousness of wearing braces and replace that with some fun!
What do your rubber band color choices say about you? Check out this rubber band “horoscope.”
Red. You’re intense and forward-thinking. You don’t back down no matter how big the challenge that’s presented to you. Red is also the color of the heart, so red rubber bands indicate you’re a considerate, caring, loving person.
Orange. Orange may indicate you’re an artist or a drama student. You’re fearless, daring and wild, a little flamboyant and lots of fun. You have a big personality, and you’re not concerned what other people think about you. On the flip side, orange is also the color of balance and energy. And being flamboyant and fun definitely takes a lot of energy!
Green. A green traffic light means go, right? So you’re a person who’s always on the move. Go, go, go! Nothing slows you down. It also means you’re generous, compassionate and kind. Green is the color of nature and spring, so it says you love our planet. Maybe you’re passionate about recycling. Green is also the color of good luck…think four-leaf clover!
Blue. You’re relaxed – cool as a cucumber. Nothing gets you upset. You stay calm, even when your mom says you can’t chew gum or eat popcorn because of your braces.
Purple. Purple says you’re the creative type, without a doubt. You march to the beat of a different drum, and you tend to think outside the box. It says you’re mysterious. Purple is also the color of royalty, and when you’re wearing your purple rubber bands, you are royally, creatively cool.
With so many color options, it can be hard to pick just one color. Well, you don’t have to choose! You can decorate your teeth with several colors. Pick the colors of your school, your favorite sports team or go with holiday colors like red and green. If you’re still having a hard time deciding which colors to choose, ask Dr. Horner or Dr. Barrow or one of the Horner Barrow Orthodontics team.
