This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Ah braces...ruining family photos and self-confidence since 1910

For some strange reason I had an itch to make some braces for my sims, so I thought I'd share!



The braces are non-default overlays that go over your sims teeth and they come in two styles.

There's a non-recolorable version, that's all metal.



And a second version that allows for recolorable brackets. The brackets have three recolorable sections, allowing for multicolored magic in your sims mouth



These are categorized as costume makeup, and are available for both genders child-adult.

Both types for all ages/genders are in one package, for your convenience. And they both have custom thumbnails to help distinguish them in CAS.

As always you can use these for sims and such, just link back to here for the download please. And no exchange/paysites.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Haha! I wondered how long before someone make some braces. I know I wanted them but didn't expect it til sometime next year. Good job and thanks!

Wonder how long before we get broken teeth? Hmm...

Sweet! Now I can make me! Of course, my teeth aren't that perfectly straight (How sims teeth usually are) ....yet ;^)

Thanks.

This is a brilliant idea. They look so awesome, but I wouldn't use them. Had them for too long in real life -.-

Thank you so much!

They look great. I think the Sims looks better with these braces than their regular freakishly straight white teeth. I guess the braces take away some of the blinding brightness. Lol
