How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?

Invisalign’s revolutionary clear aligners help teens and adults achieve a more beautiful smile, while providing comfortable and discreet alignments. Since 1999, Dr. Lazzara has helped people in Jacksonville Beach, and Ponte Vedra/Nocatee get outstanding results with Invisalign.

Understanding The Full Cost of Invisalign

Many factors influence the total cost of Invisalign. Everyone has unique and different problems that require different levels of intervention. Additionally, outside factors like insurance and treatment time may affect the cost of your alignment. That said, treatment can cost anywhere between $2,500 to $6,500. 

During your free consultation, we digitally scan your teeth and can show you your future results while we design your treatment. Dr. Lazzara can use your computer-generated model — in addition to the data from 7 million successful Invisalign users — to provide you with a rough estimate of how long you will need to wear your Invisalign. Plus, you can get a sneak peek of what your smile will look like when the treatment is complete.  

After this portion of your free consultation, you will be able to chat with a knowledgeable member of our team about your payment options. They will also be able to file insurance claims on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry about paperwork headaches. 

The team at Lazzara Orthodontics have used Invisalign to help thousands of patients enhance their smiles. Dr. Lazzara was one of the first adopters of Invisalign in the country, and he has unparalleled experience in helping people use Invisalign to unlock the power of a glamorous smile.

Additional Costs After Your Treatment

Finishing your treatment is only the first step of getting a new smile. Without a retainer, your teeth are at risk of shifting or returning to their original crowded position. During your first year without braces, we typically recommend three office visits for retainer checks. Depending on your condition, Dr. Lazzara will recommend a removable or permanent retainer. 

If Dr. Lazzara recommends a removable retainer, you will wear it full-time except when eating and brushing for about six weeks. After six weeks, you will continue to wear the retainer every night to help preserve your alignment. 

Depending on your needs, Dr. Lazzara may also suggest a permanent retainer. These are small wires glued to the back of your front teeth. You will need to be vigilant in your dental hygiene because permanent retainers are constant fixtures in your mouth, and may accumulate excess plaque. Dr. Lazzara may recommend keeping it in place permanently if your family dentist has not noted problems with plaque buildup. After the extraction of your permanent retainer, you must wear a removable retainer. 

Why At-Home Aligners Aren’t A Money Saver

Direct-to-consumer services like SmileDirectClub talk a big game about cost-savings. The fact is: mail-order services cannot deliver optimal results. In fact, using aligners without the supervision of an orthodontist can put you at risk of causing irreparable harm to your teeth and your bite.  

Aligner treatment isn’t a simple A-B process. It’s common for your orthodontist to shift their alignment strategy during your treatment. Without guidance, you may end up with a poor alignment, putting you at a higher risk of tooth and gum loss, altered bites, and other related complications. When you opt for an online option, you do not get the opportunity to work with a professional who understands how to use aligners to deliver results. 

Many people choose SmileDirectClub because they are looking to save money. However, without proper supervision, you may be paying for lackluster results that you will end paying more money to correct later. 

Your smile is too important to trust with an amateur. Getting head-turning results starts with trusting a professional. Dr. Lazzara was one of the first orthodontists to use Invisalign in the country, and he has over 20 years of experience using aligners.

Cost-Effective Touch-Ups At Any Age

It is not uncommon to need a slight adjustment as an adult. There are many reasons why your alignment may become asymmetrical. Teeth can shift out of alignment as you age, and if you didn’t wear a retainer after your first round of braces, wearing Invisalign will help guide your teeth back into a more attractive position. 

It’s never too late to get the smile you have always wanted. Find out more about how adults are turning to orthodontic care to get a natural and full smile.
