Since braces are extremely common among teenagers, many have come to accept the fact of having them and have even resorted to pimping up their braces. This includes having colored elastics or brackets with letters or funky pictures of their choice. This trend is becoming more popular among adolescents with braces. Having trendy braces can cost an additional $50 to $300. Most parents find this expense worthwhile as it helps to alleviate their children’s shame and embarrassment of having braces at all.
