Invisible braces are an option for many children in need of orthodontic care. Though traditional metal braces usually cost less than clear or invisible braces, your child may feel more confident and less self-conscious wearing clear braces. That’s because they’re less noticeable to other people.
No matter which type of braces your child wants, all braces serve the purpose of correcting your child’s misaligned jaw and/or teeth. However, the type of braces your child wants can determine how much you’ll be paying for them and what care they’ll require.
On average, clear or tooth-colored, ceramic brackets cost between $2,000–$8,500. Of course, the price can also depend on insurance coverage.
In addition to the cost, it’s important to note the amount of care and maintenance clear braces require. The perk of clear braces is that they aren’t noticeable, but if they aren’t cared for correctly, staining can occur.
