If you’ve just found out that your child needs braces, you probably have questions regarding the cost. The average price of metal braces is anywhere between $3,000–$7,000. However, at Kool Smiles, we make it more affordable than you may think to pay for braces.
Read on to learn about the different types of braces, their average costs, and where you can find the right orthodontist for your child.
Although metal braces are still the most common type of braces, your child has more options when it comes to straightening their teeth. Some other types of braces include:
Unlike traditional metal braces, lingual braces are fitted behind the teeth and are not easily seen. Many people choose lingual braces for the appearance, but lingual braces are usually much more expensive than traditional braces.
Ceramic braces are fitted to the front of teeth, but unlike metal braces, they are usually clear or tooth-colored. Because of their color, they are much less noticeable than metal braces. The average cost of ceramic braces is $4,000–$7,400.
Also called clear aligners, invisible braces are made of clear plastic that can be removed when your child eats and drinks. Invisible braces do not contain any wires or brackets, but take longer to straighten teeth. The average cost of invisible braces is $4,000–$7,400.
If you have dental insurance, it’s best to check with your provider and orthodontist to determine the price of your child’s braces.
When looking for an orthodontist, you want to find one that accepts your insurance and provides a fun, relaxed environment for your child.
