Incognito™ Hidden Braces (iBraces) are an option for teens who are worried about the look of metal braces.These braces are placed on the back of the teeth instead of the front, so they are hidden.
While this might sound like a great option for a child who is nervous about getting braces, they can be expensive.
The cost of Incognito™ braces varies from person to person. Because they are customized to fit your child’s teeth, the cost will depend on how much treatment your child needs.
Incognito™ braces are not the only type of “invisible braces.” If your child is concerned about the look of braces, he or she has other less noticeable braces options, including:
You may think of traditional metal braces as being large and clunky, but current designs are smaller and less visible than ever before. Plus, children can customize the look of their braces and express themselves with colored bands.
Traditional metal braces can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000 and are the most affordable type of braces.
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces, except they are made from tooth-colored ceramic that helps them blend into teeth.
Ceramic braces can cost anywhere between $4,000 and $8,000, making them one of the most cost=effective “invisible” braces options.
