What Does Invisalign Cost from a Dartmouth Orthodontist?

Dreaming of straight teeth? Ready to smile and laugh again with confidence? For many adults, the only thing worse than a crooked smile is flashing an embarrassing mouthful of metal braces! Good news: Dartmouth Invisalign is an alternative to braces that will straighten your teeth without that embarrassing mouthful of metal. Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made plastic retainers to shift your teeth into proper position. People who would otherwise have been too embarrassed to wear braces as an adult are now considering Invisalign treatment.For many of these individuals, cost is a major factor in their decision making process. If you are considering Invisalign, being able to estimate the cost of treatment in advance will help you better understand what to expect and prevent any financial surprises down the road.

Estimating the Cost of Invisalign Treatment: Dartmouth Invisalign Cost Calculator

In general, the cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of braces. For both braces and Invisalign, several different factors will impact the final cost. The biggest factor affecting Invisalign cost is the extent of alignment your teeth require. Teeth with more severe alignment needs will require longer care and more sets of aligners, increasing the cost. The longer the course of treatment, the more expensive the treatment may be. Since cost varies on a case-by-case basis, your Dartmouth orthodontist will be able to give you the most accurate estimate.At Docbraces, we understand that the cost of Invisalign treatment can be a major stressor. That’s why we created our Invisalign payment estimation calculator to help patients estimate the cost of their care.Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when using the calculator:

  • Limited treatment involving alignment of only the front teeth requiring 6 to 12 months of treatment costs approximately $2,000 to $3900.
  • The average orthodontic case requiring 16 to 24 months of treatment costs approximately $5,000 to $6900.

Will Insurance Cover the Cost of Invisalign?

Most insurance providers cover Invisalign treatment costs to the same extent that they cover traditional braces. At Docbraces, our orthodontist in Dartmouth directly bills insurance providers, minimizing unnecessary paperwork and streamlining the payment process. We take the amount covered by your insurance “off the top” and spread the remaining cost out over a flexible payment schedule with 0% interest.
