Understanding Invisalign® Cost and Our Financing Options
While the cost of Invisalign® is similar to metal braces, the system offers a discreet way to straighten your teeth, typically within a shorter time span than traditional orthodontics. The baseline cost at our practice starts at $3,500, but total out-of-pocket costs for your Invisalign® treatment will vary based on a variety of factors including the extent of your misalignment, insurance coverage, and more. Dr. Philip V. Goduco can discuss the cost of Invisalign® during a consultation at our Vernon Hills, IL, office, as well as determine your candidacy for treatment.
Factors Affecting Invisalign® Treatment Costs
No two patients are alike, and no two Invisalign® treatment plans will be alike. Therefore, your individual costs can vary substantially from other patients' treatment costs.
There are a variety of factors that can affect the cost of your Invisalign® treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Goduco, he will discuss these factors with you in detail, and after a thorough examination, he will be able to give you an accurate estimate for the cost of your unique treatment plan.
Severity of Your Misalignment
Your total treatment costs will depend, in part, on the severity of your misalignment and the complexity of your case. More severe misalignment typically requires a longer treatment period, which will increase your costs.
Your Dentist's Experience
In general, the cost of treatment will be greater with a more experienced dentist. However, it is generally worth the investment to choose a skilled practitioner since this will increase the chances you will be satisfied with your outcome.
Some insurance plans will cover at least a portion of orthodontic treatment. It is important to speak with your insurance provider directly to determine what, if any, portion of Invisalign® treatment is covered.
Financing Your Invisalign® Treatment
Invisalign® is more than just a cosmetic treatment for a straighter smile. Correcting misalignment can reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease by eliminating spots where plaque and tartar build up, primarily in the tiny crevices between crooked and crowded teeth.
While the cost of Invisalign® aligners is similar to traditional metal braces, Invisalign® offers a discreet way to straighten your teeth, typically within a shorter time span than traditional braces.
