Tips and Warnings:

  • If you don't wanna go through all the trouble making fake braces you can go to a special costume shop where you can buy fake braces that clip onto your teeth.
  • There are a couple of online stores that sell custom fake braces: Fake Braces Company in the U.S. and Braces Shop in Germany.
  • If you wanna be extra safe use sand paper and sand down the edges before using the pliers to curve the paper clip.
  • Be extra careful while shaping the paper clip into your mouth shape; it could cut you!
  • Be careful and don't choke on the paperclip.
  • For the wire version, if you put tin foil on and you have fillings this can cause terrible pain. Proceed with caution.
