The Cost of Invisalign®

The cost of Invisalign® at our Franklin Square, NY, area practice is comparable to that of traditional braces. As with braces, costs vary from patient to patient. The total cost of your care will depend on several factors, including the duration of treatment and any preparatory procedures required.

Fortunately, many insurance companies will contribute to the cost of Invisalign®. The team at Smiles on Broadway Dental Care can help you obtain these insurance benefits. Alternatively, if your carrier does not cover treatment, we can create an affordable payment plan that will fit within your budget.

Invisalign® offers numerous benefits, making it a great investment in your smile, and helping you to avoid costly care in the future.

An Overview of Invisalign®

Image of smiling girl receiving a dental alignerInvisalign® is an innovative orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners, rather than metal braces, to straighten teeth. When you choose Invisalign®, we will provide these custom-made trays, crafted from precise digital impressions of your teeth. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. Their gentle force will cause teeth to shift into a healthier position.

Throughout your treatment, you will make periodic visits to our office so that our dentists can monitor your progress.

Duration of Your Treatment

The length of treatment is one of the biggest factors affecting total cost. The longer the treatment, the more aligner trays you will require, and the more visits you will make to our practice. In general, Invisalign® will take longer if you have more severe orthodontic issues. 

Invisalign® can improve a variety of types of malocclusion, including overbites, underbites, cross bites, and more. If your primary goal is to improve the aesthetics of your smile, treatment could take as little as six months. On the other hand, if you want to realign your entire bite, treatment could take a year or more.

Additional Treatments 

In some cases, you may need preparatory treatment before you receive Invisalign®. For example, your dentist will treat gum disease before beginning orthodontic care.

Invisalign® offers numerous benefits, making it a great investment in your smile, and helping you to avoid costly care in the future.

In other instances, you may desire to undergo a cosmetic procedure once your Invisalign® therapy is complete. Treatments such as teeth whitening can give your newly straightened smile an extra boost. Additional treatments will affect the total cost of care.

Why Invest in Invisalign®?

When you are considering the cost of Invisalign®, it is important to remember the many benefits:

  • Following treatment, you will have a more symmetrical smile, rejuvenating your look. Patients often feel that Invisalign® takes years off their appearance.
  • Invisalign® can reduce your risk of gum disease, since food and bacteria will no longer be trapped between overlapping teeth. Straighter teeth are easier to clean.
  • After treatment, you will also have a lower risk of TMJ Disorder and bruxism because your bite force will be evenly distributed along the dental arches.
  • Invisalign® can save you a significant amount of money on future restorative care.
