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?

I like the colored ones. They are more fun. You could get your favorite colors. I recommend the colors: Blue and Green or Green and Orange. You can also get holiday related colors like, red and green, purple and orange, or yellow and purple. Have fun! :B

You will have them for a while, might as well have something you like. If you are diligent about mouth care, you should be fine.
