The Cost of Invisalign

For most patients, the cost of Invisalign® is similar to that of braces, ranging from $3,000 to $8,000. Your final Invisalign cost will depend on several factors, including the complexity of your case, how long your treatment takes, and your insurance coverage. The area in which you live can also affect how much you pay for orthodontic treatment. Since the cost of Invisalign varies on a case-by-case basis, it is important to discuss costs with your dentist before beginning treatment.

Complexity of Treatment

Invisalign can treat many of the same conditions as braces, including overcrowding and gaps in your smile. The overall price will vary depending on the extent of misalignment. For example, if you have a single gap between your front teeth, the price of treatment will likely be less than that of someone with a severely crooked smile. Invisalign offers several types of trays that are designed to address a range of orthodontic issues. The price varies for each solution.

Length of Treatment

In some cases, treatment with Invisalign is faster and more effective than traditional braces, which can save you time and money.

Invisalign features of a series of clear, plastic aligners. Each new set of aligners is slightly different and gradually guides your teeth into their ideal position. The longer your treatment takes, the more aligners you will need, which can raise the overall cost of treatment. For some conditions, Invisalign can correct misalignment more quickly than braces. However, the length of treatment can vary significantly from patient to patient.

Geographic Location

As with many dental services, the price of your treatment may vary depending on where you live. Often, treatment costs are much higher in major urban areas, especially those on either coast. In large cities, the cost of living is higher and the increased overhead costs for dental practices often translates to a higher price for treatment.

Provider Status

Invisalign ranks dentists based on their experience with the Invisalign system. Statuses range from bronze to VIP. In some cases, an elevated provider status may affect the cost of your treatment as more experienced dentists tend to charge more for treatment. However, since straightening your teeth requires precision and care, choosing an experienced dentist or orthodontist can help you achieve the results you desire.

Dental Insurance

Not all dental insurance plans include coverage for orthodontic treatments. However, if your plan covers braces, there is a chance it also covers Invisalign. It is a good idea to consult your insurance company before beginning the Invisalign process to ensure your treatment will be covered. You can also use your flexible spending account (FSA) to pay for Invisalign.

Financing

If your insurance does not cover Invisalign treatment, a financing plan can help you manage your out-of-pocket costs. Companies such as CareCredit® offer no- or low-interest plans to make paying for your orthodontic treatment easier. Your dentist may also offer in-office financing for qualifying patients. 

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is an advanced alternative to braces that provides a more comfortable and discreet way to straighten your teeth. In some cases, treatment with Invisalign is actually faster and more effective than traditional braces. Invisalign also requires fewer trips to your dentist’s office, saving you on copays and other office fees. With its numerous cosmetic and oral health benefits, many patients consider Invisalign to be a worthwhile investment in their smile.
