If you have gapped or crooked teeth, or suffer from jaw misalignment,  Invisalign® clear braces can straighten your teeth quickly and effectively. However, many patients are reluctant to try clear braces due to the perceived cost. But Invisalign clear braces cost less than you might think.  

 

What are Clear Braces?

Clear braces are a set of clear thermoplastic trays that sit on top of your teeth and gently force misaligned teeth to conform to the mould. You change the trays every 1-2 weeks as recommended by your dentist until your teeth are in the correct position. 

At Dental Spot, we use Invisalign clear aligners, the most popular clear braces on the market. We use the latest 3D scanning technology to take digital images of your teeth and mouth to map the progression of your teeth throughout the treatment. We use this data to fabricate a series of clear aligner trays at our on-site dental laboratory to give you customised trays that fit your mouth perfectly. 

 

Why Choose Clear Braces?

While traditional braces and clear aligners are both effective ways for correcting a variety of alignment issues, Invisalign clear braces have some advantages over conventional brackets and wires. 

Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily life as much as metal braces. They only need to be worn for at least 22 hours per day, and you can remove them to eat and brush your teeth.

Clear braces are also reported to be more comfortable to wear than metal braces. The clear plastic trays are smooth and won’t scratch your cheeks and gums. There is also less risk of damage to your teeth and gums if you sustain trauma to your mouth as the trays will not break. 

Finally, Invisalign clear braces are less noticeable than traditional braces. The clear trays appear almost invisible, making them an excellent choice for teens and adult patients who want a discrete teeth straightening option. 

 

How Much Do Clear Braces Cost?

There is no flat rate price for Invisalign clear braces. Each patient’s oral health needs are unique, and many factors contribute to the overall clear braces cost.

  • Length of Treatment

The complexity of your case impacts the length of time it will take to correct your orthodontic issues. You need to wear more pairs of clear aligner trays for longer treatment and visit your dentist more often.

This adds to the cost of clear braces.

  • Number of Teeth That Need Correction

Some patients may need both the upper and lower arches corrected due to severe misalignment or multiple tooth issues. Other patients may only need to straighten one or two teeth on a single arch. As complex cases require more aligner trays, the cost will be greater than treating simple issues. 

 

  • Additional Treatments

If your teeth are stained, chipped, or you have signs of gum disease, you may need treatment before having your Invisalign braces fitted. Teeth whitening treatment, fillings, and scaling and planing procedures incur an extra cost which increases the overall price of your Invisalign clear braces.

 

Does Medicare Cover Orthodontic Treatment?

Medicare does not generally cover orthodontic treatment, such as clear braces. However, you may be eligible for coverage if your clear braces are deemed medically necessary to prevent health problems. 

Children eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) can receive $1,000 to go towards dental treatment over two consecutive years. This payment is generally not paid towards orthodontic treatment

 

Can I Use Private Health Insurance to Cover the Clear Braces Cost?

Basic private health care often does not include coverage for dental work. If you have Extras Cover, your insurance provider may pay for the clear braces cost under your Major Dental policy. 

It is essential to check your policy and call your health care provider before scheduling a fitting for clear braces to ensure that you have the right level of coverage. Should you wish to increase your coverage, you should be aware that many insurance companies have a mandatory waiting period during which you cannot make a claim. 

 

How Can I Finance Clear Braces?

At Dental Spot, we believe that everyone should be able to achieve the smile of their dreams, so we offer flexible payment plan options through ZipPay. ZipPay lets you pay for your orthodontic treatment upfront, then pay off the clear braces cost in affordable instalments.
