What kind of braces should I get?
Today I went for a consultation for braces and saw an orthodontist, and I was looking forward to getting braces and choosing a color for them. However, the orthodontist told me that the old kind of braces is the kind that uses colors, and it's bad for your teeth and builds up a lot of plaque. He boasted about the new kind of braces that he uses that are metal and only come in silver/metal and clear. Is he just trying to market these new braces for himself or are the braces with colors really that bad for your teeth?
