Beautiful Teeth Don’t Have to Cost a Pretty Penny: Invisalign® Costs
At Astoria Dental Group, we are pleased to offer the latest advancements in cosmetic and restorative dentistry at competitive rates that help make quality oral health care affordable on a variety of budgets. One of the most popular treatments available at our practice is the revolutionary breakthrough in orthodontic technology, Invisalign®. The Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to gradually guide the teeth into their proper positions in the mouth, allowing patients to achieve uniform, straight teeth and strong, well-aligned bites. Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign® aligners are comfortable and convenient, and they can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Perhaps best of all, they are virtually invisible, meaning that patients do not have to compromise the aesthetics of their smiles while improving their oral health.
Because Invisalign® offers nearly all of the benefits of traditional orthodontic systems with none of the inconveniences, many patients assume in advance that treatment must be out of their price range, or at least significantly more expensive than metal braces. When they sit down to discuss Invisalign® costs during consultations at our Queens practice with Dr. Clifford Degel or Dr. Carmen Every-Degel, they are often surprised to learn that treatment is generally affordable and, in many cases, covered at least in part by their dental insurance plans.
In fact, the biggest question in your case may not be whether you can afford Invisalign®, but whether you are a good candidate for treatment. To find out, we encourage you to schedule your initial consultation with one of our esteemed cosmetic and restorative dentists today.
The Cost of Invisalign® Treatment
In general, the cost of Invisalign® treatment is comparable to the cost of treatment with conventional metal braces. Depending on the individual, there may be factors that would cause one treatment to be somewhat more expensive than the other; however, if treatment with traditional metal braces were to run about $5,000, the cost of Invisalign® treatment would likely be in the same ballpark, give or take $500.
As for what the exact cost of treatment would be in your unique case, it would depend on such factors as:
- The nature and severity of your orthodontic issue, which will determine how many aligners must be created in order to produce the desired result.
- Whether any restorative work, including periodontal treatment or tooth extraction, must be performed prior to the commencement of your Invisalign® therapy.
- Whether Invisalign® is being performed on its own or in conjunction with other cosmetic or orthodontic treatments in order to achieve the desired results.
Of course, your out-of-pocket expenses will also depend on whether your dental insurance policy covers Invisalign® treatment to any extent. Many insurance plans cover Invisalign® to the same extent that they would cover any other orthodontic treatment; our office would be happy to help you make the most of your insurance benefits. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to qualified applicants.
