Straight Talk about the Cost of Care with Invisalign Clear Braces

If you think the only way to straighten your teeth is to suffer with a metal-filled mouth, think again. Today, Invisalign® clear braces make straightening teeth practically invisible and painless. If you’re concerned about the cost of Invisalign, see how the price and payment options can put treatment in easy reach.

The Cost of Invisalign

Did you know that the cost of Invisalign clear braces is generally comparable to the price of metal braces? This may be rather surprising because Invisalign is so much less conspicuous and painful than traditional metal braces. But knowing that their prices can be similar makes Invisalign a viable alternative to metal braces. Of course, realize that each case is unique, so you need to see an Invisalign provider to figure out the total cost of clear braces for you.

Coverage by Dental Insurance

With more and more people opting for clear braces, many dental insurance plans now cover Invisalign care. If your dental insurance plan includes orthodontic coverage, then Invisalign should be covered just as much as metal braces because it’s simply an alternative to metal braces. To see if your dental plan covers Invisalign, review your personal coverage and check with your dental insurance provider because everyone’s benefits differ.

Affordable Payment Options

Today, most Invisalign providers offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans to put clear braces in everyone’s reach. Some offer financing through CareCredit, which is a third-party patient financing program that eases the payment of treatment. Another worthwhile option is the DentRite dental discount plan. DentRite isn’t dental insurance, but rather a discount dental plan that provides substantial savings on dental procedures for you and your family. DentRite can be better than dental insurance because it offers unlimited usage, individual or family membership, and acceptance for everyone. Ask your Invisalign provider about these options to make clear braces a clear choice for you.
