Many of our patients’ parents are curious about Invisalign. Maybe they never got the orthodontic treatment they needed when they were younger—or maybe they did, but their teeth shifted back because they didn’t wear their retainers! When bringing their kids to our office for braces or Invisalign Teen, they wonder, “Should I get Invisalign too?” This, of course, brings up another question, “How much does Invisalign cost?” We answer this and related questions about paying for Invisalign in the blog post below.
What does Invisalign cost in Levittown?
The cost of Invisalign is between 4-6 thousand in Levittown. Because the cost depends on how many aligners you'll need and how long your treatment will last, there's a range of prices, but we’ll tell you exactly what you can expect to pay during your consultation. Typically, the cost is more if your teeth and bite require considerable correction than if you only require minimal adjustments. We can also find out what your insurance plan will pay and consults are always free.
Is Invisalign cheaper than braces?
Invisalign aligners are a little more expensive than ceramic braces (also known as clear braces) and lingual braces, which are bonded to the backs of the teeth. Invisalign is typically slightly more than metal braces, but this, too, is dependent on your specific orthodontic needs. In most cases, the cost difference between Invisalign and metal braces is negligible.
How much does Invisalign cost with insurance?
Invisalign costs vary depending on your dental insurance coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage via your insurance, Invisalign is frequently reimbursed up to the cost of traditional metal braces. If you have any questions regarding your benefits, we can help you understand what's covered and what you'll have to pay out of pocket during your consultation.
Is Invisalign worth getting?
Yes, it absolutely is! Our patients are thrilled with how their smiles look after Invisalign, and they also enjoy better oral health once completing their treatment. However, results aren't everything; you should also pick a treatment option that doesn’t inconvenience you since you’ll have to wear aligners or braces for a while. Invisalign is popular because of its comfort and simplicity, and our patients like having a discreet option so no one knows they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Is there a cheaper alternative to Invisalign?
While there are less costly online competitors, they simply cannot compete with Invisalign and in-person orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist will design and monitor your aligner therapy to ensure that your teeth move as expected. You may not get the results you want or, worse, you may cause harm to your teeth and gums if you use an online aligner system and don’t have regular in-person visits with an orthodontist.
How can I pay for Invisalign?
If you can't afford to pay for your Invisalign treatment up front, you can pay for it monthly and may also use funds from a flexible spending account (FSA) or a health savings account (HSA). Many insurance plans pay for a large portion of the treatment costs.
