For example, if you have very dark teeth and decide to get yellow-color braces, that might not provide enough contrast for you—it will just seem like all of your teeth are yellow. On the other hand, if you have dark-colored teeth and opt for clear brackets or another less dramatic color, it could make a big difference in what people see when they look at your smile. Clear brackets can also help make sure that everyone notices everything else about your smile (like perfect spacing) without being distracted by what’s on your teeth.
