You don't have to have any set colors, you change them every time you get them tightened. Green is always the prettiest color imo. Either way, be sure to stay away from yellow lol.

I'm getting braces in Jan 2012.  I've already setup my Flex spending acct through my job.  But yeah, most insurance comapnies don't cover for adults.  I'm getting the damon braces in clear.  See attached link:
 
 
What sold me on trying these is that they don't have the rubber bands like traditional metal braces and that they have quicker results where you don't have to wear them as long.  Also, after clicking on link, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will see a group of people and you can position your mouse over each person to guess if they are wearing braces or not (basically showing you that these braces are more visually appealing than traditional braces)

I have invisalign and they are fantastic! I had a large central gap that is now non existent. I'm now just doing my refininement trays then I will have my teeth whitened in the new year. Will also get a retainer to wear at night to get the bone in place.

Invisalign wasn't an option for me.  I need too much work done.  My teeth weren't jacked but the structure of my mouth was going to cause problems.  I didn't have any room for my wisdom teeth to grow in (teeth were already in that spot), so I had to get 4 teeth pulled in the front.  My orthodontist shifted all of my teeth forward, added some thing to the roof of my mouth, and filed my teeth down.

I have a beautiful smile! If I could get braces again I sure would...I loved them! I had them for about 4.5 years and I contantly had chains and rubberbands.

I am up here kicking myself now.  I am in braces for the 2nd time.  First time was Sept '06 - Oct '10.  I messed around and elected to get the clear ICE brackets and they don't move your teeth as effectively as the traditional metal ones.  So towards the end of my treatment I was switched to the metal ones.  I just a had an overjet and a gap between my two front teeth.  It is all fixed now but I don't think the doc was completely happy with his work so I am in them again ( he said 6months) and we are trying to perfect it. Free of charge.

I am in pain now (particularly when I eat) because he just put a powerchain on yesterday.  I forgot how painful it can be.  I should be good in a couple of days.  I say go for it, and go the traditional route!!! I sure wish I would have done all this earlier.
