Wondering How Much Braces Cost for Your Child?
How much do braces cost? The answer can depend on a number of factors, but typically, the cost ranges between $3,000 to $8,000. Even though you want what’s best for your child, having affordable options can help with the financial strains these treatments often cause. So let's learn more about the cost of braces and explore some options you have at your local Kool Smiles.

What Affects the Price for Braces?
There are several factors that can affect how much you pay for your child’s braces, including:
The type of braces: There are different types of braces your child's orthodontist will recommend. Typically, the traditional metal braces are more affordable than ceramic or self-ligating ones.
Your child's dental situation: The way your child's adult teeth are growing in can affect the cost of the overall treatment. Depending on how severe your child's teeth are, the cost for braces treatment can be greater the longer your kid needs to wear them.
Dental insurance coverage: The amount your braces will cost also depends on whether or not you have coverage. Even families with dental insurance may not have coverage for more than basic dental care.
