how much does Invisalign cost

How Much are Payment Plans for Invisalign?

The total price of straightening your smile with Invisalign is different for each patient, as it is calculated by many different variables. The cost can vary depending on the following: 


The Specific Invisalign Plan You Select

There are three Invisalign plan options for patients to choose from. Traditional Invisalign is used to treat more complex cases and provides an unlimited amount of aligner trays used for correction. Secondly, there is the Invisalign Lite option, which is used in moderate cases and offers a limited amount of trays. Lastly, there is Invisalign Express, the briefest and least expensive choice; this plan is most often used to treat small spacing and crowding issues. How much work you need done, as well as the plan you select as a result, will influence the overall cost.

Your Overall Teeth & Gum Health

Depending on the health of your teeth and whether or not you are suffering from any degree of gum disease, work may need to be done before your mouth is healthy enough to begin the Invisalign process. This additional work may raise the price of your Invisalign investment. 

Where in Houston You’re Located

Lastly, what part of Houston you’re looking to get Invisalign in will play a factor in how much your overall cost will be. That being said, it is important that you do your research and shop around before choosing which Invisalign provider will work best for you.

Taking all of these factors into account, the average cost of Invisalign can be anywhere from $3,500 to $5,500. Luckily, insurance providers often provide limited orthodontic coverage, which can sometimes help with the overall cost. Heights Smile Co. can help by looking into your exact coverage options for you.


How Much Do You Have to Pay Upfront for Invisalign?

It is very likely that you will be required to provide a down payment when purchasing and financing Invisalign. The exact amount of that down payment will depend on the payment plan you choose to move forward with.
