Cost of Invisalign – Austin, TX
Invest in a Straight, Beautiful Smile
Invisalign provides the perfect option for teens and adults who need a discreet solution to achieve the smile of their dreams. Unfortunately, many people don’t think clear aligners are for them because they are too expensive, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Invisalign costs about the same as traditional metal braces depending on your treatment plan. Not to mention, you may be able to use your dental insurance to reduce the amount you need to pay. At Parkfield Family Dental, we’ll help you achieve a straight smile without breaking the bank.
Factors That Influence the Cost
One of the most important questions you need to have answered before you’re ready to commit to the treatment is, “how much does Invisalign cost?” There’s no easy answer if you don’t have a consultation. The cost of the treatment is determined on a patient-by-patient basis.
There are several factors that influence the cost of your treatment, such as the severity of your alignment concerns. Generally, complex cases will require more aligners, which will increase the cost. Whether you need additional treatments will also impact the price.
Thankfully, there are also several factors that also lower the amount you need to pay, like using your dental insurance. Now, many insurance carriers will cover a portion of the cost of the aligners. The amount varies depending on your individual plan. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We’ll work with you to find the solutions you need to cover the remaining balance, such as using third-party financing with CareCredit.
Is Invisalign Worth the Investment?
Believe it or not, a straight smile is worth more than just your confidence. Although aligning your teeth will raise your self-esteem, it offers other benefits as well. When your teeth are in their ideal positions, it makes them easier to keep clean. This reduces your risk of common dental problems, like tooth decay and gum disease.
You also have a decreased risk of other complications associated with alignment and bite concerns, like dental emergencies and disorders of the temporomandibular joint. Overall, a straight smile is an investment because it lowers your long-term dental costs.
What to Expect During the Consultation?
Invisalign is effective for correcting several bite and alignment issues, but it isn’t the right choice for everyone. You’ll need a thorough consultation to evaluate your orthodontic needs and your oral health. Besides a visual examination, X-rays, images, and impressions of your mouth are taken to determine if the clear aligners can help you.
After your consultation, Dr. Tijerina discusses the results of your consultation and explains your treatment plan. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate and explain the cost associated with your treatment. A member of our team will explain how you can use your insurance and your coverage options to keep a straight smile within your budget.
