How Much Does It Cost To Get Clear Braces

When it comes to considering how to straighten your teeth, cost is always an important factor. Therefore, when trying to determine how much it actually cost you to get clear braces, it’s helpful to note that there are a variety of factors which can influence the final cost. For example, the complexity of your case for one, can definitely contribute. That’s why in this article we will start off by discussing what clear braces are, what the treatment plan will look like and of course how much you could expect to pay. So, let’s dive in!

What Are Clear Braces?

As the name suggests, clear braces are a discrete alternative to traditional metal braces. One of the most popular forms of clear braces is called Invisalign®. As a revolutionary orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® has become a worthy alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, custom made soft plastic aligners to gently align your teeth into their desired position.

Although Invisalign® has proven to be very effective in treating some very complex orthodontic cases, it’s popularity has grown due to it’s virtually invisible aesthetic. Their clear aligners are difficult to see when worn, which is a significant advantage to this treatment alternative. Add to that, these aligners are also removable, making it easier to eat and clean your teeth.

Invisalign® is now a genuine alternative to braces. Owing to their significant advantages, it’s clear to see why this treatment is growing in popularity.

Thanks to the advanced technology that the Invisalign® technique relies on, we will do a 3D digital scan of your teeth. With this, we can then map out a custom treatment plan just for you. You’ll even get to preview the movement of your teeth from the moment you start wearing your invisible braces, to the day your Invisalign® treatment concludes. You will also get to see what your smile will look like after treatment!

Your aligners will be custom made for you using an advanced mass customisation process. Clear aligners are made by a team of expert engineers and scientists which draw on and employ the latest technology.

There’s no need to significantly alter your life or avoid certain foods. Invisalign® clear aligners have many benefits, including the ability to remove them for up to 2 hours each day to eat the foods you enjoy.
