Do braces make your teeth whiter?
no they make your teeth look nice and in order you have to brush to make clean
You can make your teeth appear whiter by using at-home treatments like whitening gels or strips available at most retail stores. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day helps keep your teeth white, and some chewing gums have been proven to help keep your teeth white. If you have fair-colored skin, tanning could increase the contrast of your skin to your teeth, making them appear whiter.
If you want to get your teeth whiter for free you just get 2 items you can find in your house you need: 2 tsp of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide you mix the items to make a kind of paste and you wash your teeth for 2 MINS. BUT DON'T SHALLOW it taste BAD!!! then you wash your mouth with normal tooth paste and your teeth are WHITER!!!!
Simple: Reatiners don't have the brackets. They are normally used to keep teeth in place. Braces have brackets, and are used to align your teeth to make them straight. --------------------------------- The retainer is used after the braces have straightened your teeth and have been removed. It helps you teeth 'retain' their shape.
