3 Secrets for Making Invisalign Affordable

Will Insurance Pay for Invisalign

Imagine your life with straighter teeth: would you smile more on first dates? Speak up during company meetings? Carry yourself with confidence wherever you went? Straighter teeth can be life-changing. Unfortunately, many adults fear the price tag associated with teeth straightening is too high. That doesn’t have to be the case. Invisalign is a discreet alternative that uses clear aligners to gently shift your teeth into proper alignment. The cost for Invisalign is similar to the cost of conventional braces. Even better, many insurance companies have coverage that will offset the cost of Invisalign treatment the same as conventional braces.

Even with partial insurance coverage, our orthodontists understand that the cost can still feel like a burden, especially for lengthy treatments. At Docbraces, our team is committed to helping every patient achieve their dream of a perfect smile. These are three ways our team helps make Invisalign affordable for everyone. More»

Invisalign After Braces: Straightening Your Teeth (Again) as an Adult

Invisalign Nova Scotia - Top Considerations When Selecting a Provider

If you had braces as a teen, you know there’s nothing quite like the unbridled joy that comes when your braces are finally removed. You’re no longer a socially-awkward teen with a mouthful of metal! Unfortunately, the next step, wearing a retainer, can be almost as challenging. Metal retainers, like braces, are not particularly attractive. They’re tight, they can make speaking awkward, and they’re easy to misplace. If you stopped wearing your retainer shortly after you got your braces off, you’re not alone. For one reason or another, most young adults stop wearing removable retainers. A decade later, that bad habit can catch up with you. Your formerly straight teeth are crooked again. Can Invisalign save the day? Absolutely. More»

Braces or Invisalign: Which is Right for Me?

Braces or Invisalign

“Straight Talk” from an Orthodontist Who Offers Both – Trying to decide between braces or Invisalign? Choosing between these two options can feel a bit overwhelming. On the one hand, both braces and Invisalign achieve similar end results. They straighten your teeth, support good oral health and help you achieve your dream smile. On the other hand, the process and timeline for each differ.

Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible and can easily be removed for eating and cleaning. Braces, on the other hand, are metal brackets that are glued to your teeth and held together with wires and tiny, rubber bands. Clear and enamel brackets are available, but these options are still not as discreet as Invisalign. More»

Ready to finally take the first step to straighten your teeth? Once you’ve made the decision to achieve your dream smile, it’s natural to be eager to see results as soon as possible. Invisalign, like braces, will straighten your teeth very gradually, so you may not notice a dramatic difference over night. It’s unrealistic to expect to start with Invisalign one week and see results the next. You won’t have to be patient for too long, however! While result speed varies between patients, some patients may begin to notice a subtle difference within 10 to 12 weeks. More»
