Because they are less noticeable than metal braces, invisible or clear braces are an attractive choice for straightening teeth. However, they are more expensive than traditional metal braces.
Keep reading to learn how much invisible braces cost and how they work to straighten your child’s teeth.
Estimating the Cost of Invisible Braces
The best way to get an accurate quote on the cost of invisible braces is to talk to an orthodontist. However, it is possible to estimate the price.
The average cost of invisible braces is between $4,000 and $7,400 for Invisalign and $4,000 to $8,000 for ceramic braces. This price estimate is only slightly higher than regular braces ($3,000 to $7,000).
At Kool Smiles, we make it more affordable than you may think to afford the cost of invisible braces.
How Invisible Braces Work
Invisalign works by using clear, plastic aligners to straighten the teeth. They are much like mouth guards, and do not require brackets or wires. Here are some benefits to Invisalign:
Fewer limitations on what you can eat and drink
Before making a decision on Invisalign braces, note the following items:
Treatment can take longer
This option is not for serious dental cases
Invisalign aligners can be easily lost and expensive to replace
Ceramic braces work the same as traditional braces, using wire and brackets. They are often considered invisible braces because they are tooth-colored and are less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Some of their benefits include:
Work much faster than Invisalign
However, ceramic braces are more expensive than traditional braces and their brackets can stain easily if they are not regularly cleaned.
