How Much Does Invisalign Cost in NYC?
It is hard to predict the exact cost of Invisalign in NYC, or anywhere else, because it depends on many variables. Besides geographic location, the dentist’s skill and experience, the current condition of your teeth, and how long you will need to wear Invisalign all play a role in determining the exact price. In general, though, the average price in NYC is between $3,000 and $8,000.
Fortunately, Invisalign pricing is completely transparent. Jennifer Stachel Orthodontics is an Invisalign Elite Provider, which means that we have treated more than 300 patients with Invisalign, and continue to do so at a rate of at least 50 per month. Dr. Stachel will provide an initial consultation to determine whether Invisalign is right for you, and provide you with a full cost breakdown before treatment ever begins. Depending on your exact needs, you may find that Invisalign is comparable in cost to traditional braces.
Is There a Difference in Price Between Invisalign and Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is an excellent orthodontic option for teen patients. The system offers some unique features, including compliance indicators, complimentary replacements for lost aligners, and a design that helps move the roots of teeth, but surprisingly, the price of Invisalign Teen is comparable to the price of Invisalign for adults.
Is Invisalign Covered By Dental Insurance?
Dental insurance is complicated, and each contract is slightly different. In general, though, if orthodontic care is covered, your insurer will likely cover some of the cost of Invisalign. If you provide our office with your insurance information, we will be happy to help you determine how much of the cost is covered.
Can I Get Financing for Invisalign?
If you need help paying for Invisalign, we offer a couple of different options. Our no-interest in-house financing is available to qualified customers. We also accept CareCredit, an instant-approval healthcare financing service with several different payment options. Our staff will be glad to help you through the financing process.
Is There a Cheaper Alternative to Invisalign?
While it’s true that there are companies that claim to let you straighten your teeth at home without ever seeing an orthodontist in person, these systems simply don’t compare to the service you get from an orthodontist like Dr. Stachel. As an orthodontist, Dr. Stachel has advanced education in the movement of teeth to correct bites and misalignment. There’s more to Invisalign than simply popping on a new set of aligners each week—Dr. Stachel carefully designs each patient’s custom aligners using her years of training and expertise.
Dr. Stachel does have the ability to fabricate a series of aligners with her 3-D printer as a treatment option for some movements as well. The turnaround time is faster than the time it takes to receive the Invisalign aligners. These are also designed by her, and it allows her to make adjustments to your treatment plan in less time.
Why Is Invisalign So Expensive?
Many of our patients are surprised to find out that the cost of Invisalign is actually less than they expected, and often comparable to that of metal braces. When you come to our office for a consultation, we’ll provide you with a cost breakdown to help you understand the pricing and also give you an estimate of what you can expect your dental insurance carrier to pay towards your Invisalign treatment and how much you will need to pay out of pocket.
