Glow in the dark braces

Are glow in the dark braces more costly than regular braces?


  • Many orthodontists have many different color choices for the rubber bands that are put on the braces during monthly check-up appointments. Patients get to choose the color of their rubber bands for each appointment at no extra charge. My son got glow in the dark "rubber bands" for Halloween one year. They worked pretty well for a couple of weeks (he had to smile for a few minutes close to a turned-on lamp so the bands absorbed light). The glow lasted a few minutes. It's definitely a novelty.
