Clear Ceramic Braces Cost

How much do invisible braces cost? Invisible braces cost around $4,000 to $8,000, which is more than traditional metal braces (which can cost between $3,000 to $7,000). 

One of the reasons kids dislike having to get braces is because of the way they look. However, you can get a little less visibility in the form of clear ceramic braces.

Keep reading to learn about the benefits of clear, ceramic braces and how much they cost.

Cost of Invisible Braces

The biggest reason invisible braces are more expensive than traditional braces is that clear braces are made from ceramic, which is a more expensive material than stainless steel. 

There are several other factors that can affect the price of clear braces. These include:

  • Experience—An orthodontist with a lot of specialized training will often charge more to put on braces than a general dentist or dental student.
  • Age of patient—Ceramic braces generally cost more for adults than kids because there are more materials needed to cover larger teeth.
  • Location—The cost of ceramic braces may vary from one state or region to the next.

In addition to the added upfront cost, the price of ceramic braces can continue to increase in the long-run. Ceramic braces usually require more adjustments than metal ones, which means more visits to the orthodontist.

Parents should also consider that ceramic braces are not as sturdy as metal ones, so any damage that occurs can lead to an added cost for repair.

Why Should My Child Get Ceramic Braces?

For teenagers who are self-conscious about their teeth, clear, ceramic braces, also known as invisible braces, are an appealing option. Unlike traditional braces, ceramic braces are clear or tooth-colored so that they are much less visible.

Depending on the material, however, the price of different types of braces can vary greatly. 

So why pay extra for ceramic braces?

What you’re really paying for with clear ceramic braces is the fact that they are less visible than metal braces. Many kids do not want to get braces because of the way they look. But ceramic braces are either clear or tooth-colored and are not as easy to see as metal braces.

Ceramic braces can also help people feel more confident while smiling, laughing, and speaking.
