‘Clear’ or ‘almost invisible’ braces are terms used to describe the latest advances in orthodontic technology, namely treatments like Invisalign. These have grown increasingly popular as more and more adults seek inconspicuous orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth in as short a time as possible.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, “how much are clear braces?”.
Here we do our best to answer that question for you.
This is a tricky question for any orthodontist. Any small amount of research will show you that every orthodontic treatment is a bespoke operation, and so can vary dramatically in price. Not to mention the great many finance options available which could increase the total cost of your treatment.
The simplest answer to this question is no. The truth of the matter is that anyone who offers you a quote without a consultation is misleading you. Although it’s possible to give a range of treatment cost, without properly assessing the condition of your teeth and the degree of straightening required, it’s next to impossible to give an accurate quote.
Not only will the length of treatment vary between patients, but also the additional services and support included with your treatment will vary from practice to practice, and modality to modality. For example, there are several versions of Invisalign available for different cases, at different price points.
We’d advise you to avoid online quotes as these lead to disappointment for many patients who, after doing considerable research to find the best value option, attend a consultation only to find that the treatment will not give them the results they want.
That’s why at Metamorphosis we encourage patients to attend a consultation first. It will give you a better idea not only of just the immediate cost, but also the options actually available to you.
Remember that no reputable practice will ever pressure you into a treatment you’re not 100% ready for, so don’t be worried about going in for a consultation just to learn more.
As a rule of thumb when making an investment like this, you should be wary of ‘bargain’ deals, or offers that seem too good to be true. The fact of the matter is that it shouldn’t be a question of price. It should be a question of value. You want to know that you’re getting a well-thought-out treatment, from an experienced specialist, at a practice that makes you feel comfortable and safe.
When it comes to your health, it just doesn’t make sense to cut costs, and orthodontics is no different.
