How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

How much does invisalign cost

One of the most important considerations when deciding whether Invisalign is the right treatment for you, is, how much does Invisalign cost

There is no “one size fits all” fixed price for Invisalign. At Smile Stories, we know everyone’s dental starting point and outcome goals are unique, and therefore the cost will reflect this.

The good news is that the price of obtaining a beautiful dazzling smile is way more affordable than many people think.

The main factor that determines the cost of Invisalign treatment is the severity of the misalignment of your teeth. More crowding equals longer treatment times which will likely mean a higher fee. If you drive a car a longer distance, you’ll need to spend more on petrol. Invisalign can work in the same way.

Costs can vary depending on the clinic and the treatment required but prices can start from as little as £1,800 and reach up to £5,500 at the higher end, in the UK.

Dentists often offer flexible, interest-free payment plans, so treatment could cost from around as little as £40 per month.

How To Find Out The Cost of Invisalign

The exact price for Invisalign treatment can be provided after your consultation with an Invisalign Expert. 

The friendly, Invisalign trained aesthetic dentists here at Smile Stories can help. In order to let you know how much straightening your teeth would cost, we need to carry out an initial assessment of your teeth.

We can then provide you with a bespoke Confident Smile Report that contains information about the different treatment options, how long it will take and an accurate estimate of the costs.

Whilst we can’t offer a price for your Invisalign without seeing your teeth and understanding your goals, we can outline the factors affecting the cost of Invisalign treatment, what’s included in the price and answer some of the frequently asked questions about the cost of Invisalign treatment here in the UK. 

Factors Affecting How Much Invisalign Treatment Costs

The cost of straightening teeth with Invisalign varies depending on how long treatment will take. The treatment time depends on both the complexity of your dental picture (what your teeth look like now) and what you want your teeth to look like afterwards. 

Invisalign can treat mild to complex issues and it stands to reason that mild cases which require minimal correction will generally cost less.

The more complex the initial bite set up, the more the teeth need to be moved and the longer treatment will take. 

The further your teeth need to be moved, the more custom-made aligners (which are coolly shipped all the way from California) you will need, along with more interim appointments at the clinic.

What’s Included in the Cost of Invisalign Treatment?

When you invest in Invisalign treatment you are paying for much more than just the product, you’re paying also paying for the expertise of the Invisalign dentist who will create your roadmap, the path to your dream smile. It’s a bit like paying for a racing car track day and being driven round the track. The posh Mercedes is the product, but would you pay a little more for Lewis Hamilton to drive it, or stick with Joe Bloggs? Ultimately, you’re investing in yourself, your smile and your oral health, so pick your dentist wisely.

At Smile Stories, we know it’s a big commitment to pay for Invisalign

That’s why we’d never ask you to marry us after our first. That’d be ludicrous. 

We offer all of our clients a complimentary Confident Smile Report which details if you’re suitable and provides you with some bespoke information related to your mouth.

Invisalign is usually a 6-9 month process, and we want to ensure you’re completely comfortable before making that commitment. It feels right that you meet one of our Invisalign Dentists on a free Video Consultation before you pay a penny. They’ll discuss your goals, the process and give a good indication of the fee range. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any aftercare costs?

Retainers are needed to prevent your teeth from reverting to their original location and whether you have Invisalign treatment or not you will need checks with a dentist to ensure your oral health and position of your teeth.

We recommend a membership plan to ensure your teeth are locked in place for a lifetime.

Is Invisalign cheaper than braces?

In some cases, depending on the complexity of your issue, traditional braces might seem like a cheaper option than Invisalign. 

But when you take into consideration the convenience and comfort, not to mention the invisibility that comes with investing in Invisalign many would say this is justifiable.

Those that don’t want to wear train tracks for months on end would say the investment in Invisalign was worth it. 

A Skoda is cheaper than a Mercedes, but which is nicer to drive?

Can I get Invisalign on the NHS? 

No. NHS dentistry is there to support those patients who need to improve their dental health. 

There is no funding available for cosmetic treatment such as Invisalign or orthodontics when being used to make your teeth more attractive but isn’t clinically necessary. If teeth straightening is clinically required then traditional metal braces would be used. 

Are Financing Options Available?

Yes. The great news is that whilst you can’t get treatment on the NHS, many dentists offer payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of your Invisalign treatment over 12-24 months. Financing options vary between dentists so you need to clarify the T&Cs with them. Here are a few things to check with them

  • Is the payment plan interest-free?
  • Is there an up-front payment?
  • What will the monthly payment be?
  • What is the total cost of financing?

Smile Stories is completely upfront about the fees, we give you the answer to all of these questions at your consultation. No surprises here.

Is There a Cheaper Alternative to Invisalign?

As tempting as it might be to look for the cheapest price for Invisalign, beware of extremely low cost offers or cheap alternatives. There may be hidden extras, or you may receive lower quality treatment.

The promise of low-cost clear aligner treatment may not include the cost of the highly trained and competent Invisalign dentist here at Smile Stories. Other additional fees may not be being disclosed. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Conclusion

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the severity of your initial teeth setup, as this dictates how long treatment will take and how many aligners you will need. 

The more severe your misalignment the more treatment will cost. 

It’s impossible to give an exact cost for Invisalign treatment without taking a look at your teeth first.  The only way to find out how much Invisalign will cost to get the smile you have dreamed about is to have a free consultation with a dental expert. 

Here at Smile Stories, you can book in for a free Confident Smile Report, get an idea of what your new smile would look like after treatment with Invisalign, an idea of how long it will take and an estimate of the costs.
