You have probably heard this before: every smile is unique! So is every budget! Invisalign cost is determined by a variety of factors, including the severity of the problem to be corrected as well as how long the treatment is expected to last. Fees may be different from orthodontist to orthodontist, and from one region to another. The type of device (braces, aligners, etc.) that is used in treatment may also affect the fee. When you consider the lifetime benefits of orthodontic treatment, it truly is a great value!

Can Invisalign Cost be Covered by Insurance?
Invisalign costs are similar to braces, but that’s where the similarity ends. Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can keep living your life and caring for your teeth the same way you always have! At our office, we employ a system in which patients take pictures every week using an app that goes directly to our Invisalign portal. This way we can track our patients progress virtually without the need to come to the office! How cool right? This allows us to space out appointments, the average appointment interval for Invisalign is 10-12 weeks. Because the patient does not need to come often to our office, there is less time missing school, work or after school activities, making this treatment modality perfect for everyone’s busy lives.
Most insurance plans cover Invisalign costs the same way they cover traditional braces. A few plans might consider clear braces and Invisalign a premium and may pay only for traditional metal braces. It’s common for plans to pay a percentage of the bill or a fixed amount toward orthodontic treatment. You’ll most likely have a balance even after your insurance company pays. The usual amount is between $1,000 to $2,000 for up to 50% of the full cost of the treatment. So for example, if your treatment costs $6,000, and you have $2,000 in orthodontic benefits, you will be required to pay the remaining $4,000.
Some states require insurers to cover orthodontic care for children, but that requirement doesn’t apply to adults. If your plan pays for adult orthodontic care, it may only do so to correct a medical or functional issue with your teeth or jaw. If you’re not sure about your insurance benefits, you can download the Invisalign app and check your coverage. The Invisalign app has coverage information for most major insurance plans so you can see exactly what your plan will pay. You can also speak with one of our insurance specialists here at Bee Cave Orthodontics!
