How To Make Fake Braces

Have you ever wanted to have braces for fashion purposes, but didn’t want to go through the hassle of getting real ones? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we’ll teach you how to make fake braces easily and inexpensively.

What You’ll Need

Before we get started, here’s a list of things you’ll need to create your own fake braces:

  • Orthodontic wax
  • Earring backs
  • Small rubber bands
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • A small brush

Step 1: Prepping the Earring Backs

The first step in making your fake braces is to prep the earring backs. Take your wire cutters and cut off the part that goes through your ear. Then, use your needle-nose pliers to bend the remaining metal into a hook shape.

Step 2: Adding the Rubber Bands

Next, take your small rubber bands and thread them onto the hook-shaped earring backs. Make sure you have enough rubber bands to cover the entire length of the earring backs.

Step 3: Applying the Orthodontic Wax

Now it’s time to apply the orthodontic wax. Take a small piece of wax and roll it into a ball. Then, press the wax onto the rubber bands, making sure it’s evenly distributed.

Step 4: Placing the Braces

Once you have the wax on the rubber bands, it’s time to place the braces onto your teeth. Use your fingers to press the wax-covered rubber bands onto your teeth, making sure they’re in the right position.

Step 5: Adjusting the Braces

If you need to adjust the braces, use your fingers to gently move them into the correct position. You can also use your small brush to help move the braces around.


Q: How long will the fake braces last?

A: The braces will last as long as the wax holds up. You may need to reapply the wax every few hours to keep the braces in place.

Q: Will the fake braces damage my teeth?

A: If you use them correctly, the fake braces should not damage your teeth. However, if you experience any discomfort or pain, remove the braces immediately.

Q: Can I eat with the fake braces on?

A: It’s not recommended to eat with the fake braces on, as the wax may come off and the rubber bands may get stuck in your teeth.

Q: Are fake braces safe?

A: Fake braces can be safe if used correctly. However, it’s important to remember that they are not a substitute for real braces and should not be used for any medical purposes.


Now that you know how to make fake braces, you can have the look of braces without the commitment. Just remember to use them responsibly and take them off if you experience any discomfort. Happy styling!
