What is Invisalign?
Invisalign can be defined as a single or a pair of aligners used to straighten crowded or crooked teeth. Additionally, they can be used to close gaps and adjust overbites. These multi-functional, clear retainers, are custom made for each patient. Invisalign are less noticeable than braces which make them more appealing for candidates. For the best results, dentists suggest wearing Invisalign at least 20 hours per day during your treatment.
How much is Invisalign?
If you're asking how much does Invisalign cost, you have come to the right place. Invisalign is more expensive than braces because of how much value they offer to patients. Typically, the cost ranges from $3,500 to $10,000. Of course, the prices depend on exactly how long your treatment plan will last, and the oral solutions needed. Yes, Invisalign is more expensive than braces which can cost up to $8,000, but Invisalign is cosmetically better considering they are clear.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?
If you have dental insurance, you should check with them to see if they will cover your Invisalign treatment plan as most do. When it comes down it, we have noticed, for clients whose insurance does not cover their Invisalign, that the benefits from the treatment plan significantly outweighs the out of pocket expenses to straighten one's teeth. To a certain extent, this type of cosmetic dentistry changes lives. Our teeth are the only bones we show off, so investing in this literally changes lives.
Invisalign vs braces:
Braces are metal brackets that attach to each individual tooth. These brackets are connected by wires that are adjusted by an orthodontist or dentist periodically in order to shift the teeth to the desired positions. Since braces are attached to the front of each tooth, they are very noticeable. Many patients will struggle with crooked teeth, gaps, and overbites just because the thought of braces completely keeps them away from the treatment. For patients that have this mentality, invisalign is the perfect solution. Yes, they might have to wear a clear retainer most the time, or even while they sleep, but after some time of consistent & detail oriented treatment, their teeth will eventually be straight, giving them a smile to be proud of.
