Invisalign has become the most popular orthodontic treatment option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smiles without the hassles of conventional metal braces. Many teens and adults choose Invisalign because it’s discreet, convenient, and comfortable. Rather than metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently reposition the teeth, correcting their alignment and bite. If you’re wondering how much Invisalign costs, we answer this question and some others relating to the price of Invisalign in the blog post below.
What does Invisalign cost in Fairfield County, CT?
Invisalign costs in Fairfield County usually range between $3,000 and $7,000. The exact price depends upon how many aligners you need for your treatment and how long you will need to wear them. Patients who only have minor misalignments usually need fewer aligners than patients who require major bite adjustments, which means they pay less for their treatment.
One of the benefits of Invisalign is its predictability, which means that during your consultation, Dr. Levitt will be able to tell you how many aligners you will need and go over your out-of-pocket costs with you so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
Is Invisalign cheaper than braces?
Invisalign is often less expensive than braces. For example, if you are considering other discreet treatment options like clear (ceramic) braces or lingual braces, Invisalign will cost less. Compared to conventional metal braces, Invisalign is usually either slightly less or slightly more expensive, depending on the orthodontist you use for braces and your treatment plan. Even when metal braces are more expensive, many patients still choose Invisalign for its other benefits.
How much does Invisalign cost with insurance?
Dental insurance plans vary from one provider to the next, so the best way to understand what your out-of-pocket expenses will be is to contact your provider directly to ask what they will pay for your treatment. Our team is also happy to help you understand your benefits and responsibilities. Usually if a dental insurance plan covers orthodontics, it will cover the cost of Invisalign up to the price of traditional metal braces, but this isn’t always the case.
Is Invisalign worth getting?
Yes, patients who get Invisalign are thrilled with their results, but they also appreciate the ease of the Invisalign process compared to that of metal braces. Invisalign means you’ll never feel self-conscious about your smile and you’ll be able to eat all of your favorite foods. You’ll have a beautiful smile, better oral health, and you’ll be able to achieve both without the inconvenience of braces.
Is there a cheaper alternative to Invisalign?
While there are a number of aligner products that position themselves as cheaper alternatives to Invisalign, they are no replacement for the in-person supervision, treatment planning, and care provided by a dentist trained by Invisalign. Using aligners without working with a dentist can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums.
