How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Like so many of choices, when investigating Invisalign, one of the most common questions patients have is "how much does Invisalign cost?". You may be relieved to hear that moving forward with Invisalign at Docbraces is not only comfortable physically, but can be made easier on the bank account.
Putting a price on your health, happiness and self-esteem is impossible; however, the reality is that most of us have budgets to consider, even when it comes to investing in ourselves. As such, it's understandable that questions around price and cost are among the most common for people thinking about straightening their teeth.
While an exact price will depend on your unique case and will require a consultation to determine, we've assembled some of the factors to help you plan your budget so that it's affordable to achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
It's FREE to Get Started
Some medical appointments require payment just for an initial consultation. This is not the case at Docbraces—in fact, you won't even need a referral! If you’re interested in finding out whether or not Invisalign is for you, simply call and book a FREE, no-obligation consultation.
If you and your Docbraces orthodontist decide that Invisalign is the ideal option for you, the next step is to talk about cost. There is no need to worry about being pressured or misinformed about prices. Docbraces is proud to offer honest, reasonable pricing that’s built with your concerns in mind.
Handy Payment Calculator
Once you have an idea of what your Invisalign treatment will cost and have verified the price with your Docbraces orthodontist, you can use the online payment calculator on the Docbraces website to map out your payments. The payment calculator is a tool for you to determine what your unique payment circumstances will entail. It’s just a matter of putting in a down payment amount, the percentage of insurance coverage, and the length of treatment (your orthodontist will have given you this information previously). With this information, the calculator will give you an approximate treatment cost specifically tailored to you.
The payment calculator is provided to help patients estimate their costs, but the ﬁnal total and payment terms will be based on the complexity of the individual’s case. Just like the treatment and diagnosis, each patient is different. The payment calculator, however, offers is an excellent, and close, approximation.
Customized Orthodontics, Customized Payment Plan
Once your customized treatment plan has been determined and your orthodontist has quoted your cost, you can be assured that this is the total you will pay thanks to Docbraces' 0% interest ﬁnancing. Added to this convenience is a low down payment and no credit checks—Docbraces even allows you to earn Air Miles reward miles!
Not only are the payment plans flexible and interest free, but they can be spread out as equal payments over the whole course of treatment to make them more manageable. Docbraces is also pleased to offer direct billing to insurance companies that will be supplementing your orthodontic costs and will take the total amount of coverage off the top so you pay only the remaining balance.
Docbraces is all about options, both when it comes to treatments and payment plans. If you so choose, you don’t have to make regular payments. Instead, you may wish to pay the full amount at the beginning. If this is what you choose, there will be a 5% reduction to the fee. If more than one family member is a Docbraces patient, family discounts are available.
And remember, orthodontic fees are qualified medical expenses – they may be claimed for income tax purposes, so make sure you verify your individual eligibility with your accountant or tax advisor.To learn more about how Invisalign could work for you—including who makes a good candidate, how it works and which factors impact the cost—download the FREE Braces & Invisalign Guide for Adults for more information.
