Generally, invisible lingual braces cost more than typical metal braces, but that doesn't mean there aren't any other benefits. Before you look at the monetary cost alone, it's worth checking out the other cost benefits, including the top benefit...
Many people are very self-conscious when it comes to wearing braces. In fact, they'd rather stick with misaligned teeth and even painful oral issues than let people see them with a mouth full of metal.
For severe alignment issues, most invisible solutions aren't an option. However, invisible lingual braces solve all of these common problems.
Invisible lingual braces cost a little more, but the cost savings to your self-esteem are priceless. Lingual braces fit behind your teeth. This means you get straighter teeth without anyone seeing the metal.
Less Noticeable Damage
Some patients may have slight indentions in the front of their teeth with traditional braces, depending on the severity of the condition and condition of their teeth. With invisible lingual braces, cost may not matter when you discover that there won't be any noticeable damage.
Since the braces sit on the back of your teeth, any indentions won't be noticeable to anyone but you. Of course, that's only when you feel them with your tongue.
Shorter Treatment Times
Our offices use Suresmile Fusion, which comes complete with Suresmile's advanced 3D technology and custom treatment planning software. When it comes to the invisible lingual braces cost, this is often the top benefit. By having a custom created plan based upon 3D imaging, your orthodontist has the lingual braces crafted via precision robotics.
This leads to a much better fit, fewer adjustments and shorter treatment times. Not only do you get braces no one can really see, but you don't have to wear them as long. That's a win.
Invisible Lingual Braces Cost & Saving Money
If the invisible lingual braces cost is too high, you may consider a dual treatment option. Some patients opt to have lingual braces on their top teeth and traditional metal braces on the bottom. Since your bottom teeth are less visible, you still get a mostly invisible straightening treatment, but at a lower cost.
