The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on several factors.
Every smile is different and requires a unique process and time to achieve the desired smile.
This possibly means different budgets and prices depending on the case of the patient.
Invisalign is a type of dental appliance used to straighten teeth. They consist of a series of transparent and strong plastic gutters. Invisalign aligners are made in Invisalign centers. Tray aligners are made from molds of your mouth.
Custom aligners are made to fit over your teeth, Invisalign works on adding pressure to specific parts to help move your teeth into the correct position.
You need to wear Invisalign aligners for most of your day, between 20 and 22 hours a day, in order to see the desired results.
The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on a few factors such as your oral health needs and the amount of work required to achieve the desired result.
Where you live and what the average prices are in your city contribute to the cost of Invisalign.
Other factors include the working hours of the orthodontist, the type of your insurance plan and the amount it will cover.
Payment options to cover the cost of Invisalign
At Queens Medical Center, we offer you flexibility in payment options, such as monthly payment plans.
Invisalign is highly invisible, as it uses clear plastic trays, unlike conventional metal pins with brackets and wires. Plastic aligners won’t sting or scratch your gums, which is a great benefit and leads to less discomfort.
The trays can be easily removed when eating or drinking, but you will have to be careful not to lose them, which will cost you more money and time.
Other benefits of Invisalign include fewer visits to the dentist. Additionally, treatment time varies from normal braces and may even be faster, depending on your oral health and how much time you spend wearing your aligners.

If you’re looking for invisible braces, but it doesn’t fit your budget or you can’t commit to regular visits to the orthodontist. There are four alternatives available at dental clinics which are less expensive.
Lingual bands can be an alternative to Invisalign, if your main concern is appearance. They are attached to the back of your teeth and cannot be seen when you smile.
This type also uses brackets and wires similar to traditional braces, but may be less expensive than Invisalign.
Clear Correct is an Invisalign alternative that uses a similar set of clear aligners. The total cost is usually less than Invisalign. However, the gutters are generally thinner, which makes them less visible, but less solid.
The aligners are made of the same plastic that Invisalign used. But invisalign now uses the patented Smart Track material, which is supposed to feel more comfortable in the mouth.
It is a major competitor to Invisalign in the United States. The Clear Correct website states that their product costs between $2,000 and $8,000 before insurance, and that insurance can cover between $1,000 and $3,000 of your treatment, which is cheaper than Invisalign.
Results with both aligners are equal, although many orthodontists prefer Invisalign because it comes with more resources, like first-class planning software, which makes treatment easier.
Smile Direct Club introduces the idea of ”remote” teeth alignment, where patients send a 3D scan of their teeth to the remote orthodontist who creates a treatment plan.
The aligners (and sometimes a retainer) are then mailed to the patients to wear themselves. Smile club offers a much cheaper option compared to Invisalign. The treatment usually costs around $1850, which does not include the 3D scan or the retainer.
However, there are real drawbacks such as:
- The homemade kit for getting prints can be risky. If the prints were not correct, it will cause problems in your treatment on the road. It will also cost you more money.
- You will not be able to physically visit your orthodontist to check on your progress.
- If something is wrong, it will be much more difficult to fix the problem.
