Invisalign costs: How high are the aligner prices really?

Invisalign is one of the most expensive providers on the market. But how high are the Invisalign costs really and which gradations are there?

Anyone interested in the topic of Invisalign braces is usually confronted fairly quickly with the name Invisalign.

No wonder, after all, the company Align Technology with its Invisalign aligneris considered the bedrock of the aligner market.

The company is based in the US state of California and has been manufacturing invisible alignerthere since 1997.

Invisalign already has more than 14 million completed teeth straightening procedures and, unlike other aligner providers, can be used for serious misaligned teeth and patients under 18 years of age.

The only downside: Invisalign is one of the most expensive providers on the market, so prospective customers are often put off by the high prices.

But how high are the Invisalign costs really, what are the differences and is it worth the investment?

Why are the Invisalign costs not communicated transparently?

If you have already taken a look at the Invisalign homepage, you probably noticed that the company communicates its prices much less transparently than, for example, its competitor DrSmile.

The information is very vague and concrete prices are actually not mentioned at all. However, this in no way means that Invisalign is a dubious company.

Instead, pricing is simply much more individualized than with other providers. The Invisalign costs are based on the following factors:

  • the severity of the malocclusion
  • the duration of treatment and the associated number of splints required
  • the type of correction desired
  • the individual fee of the dentist or orthodontist

As soon as a treatment plan has been drawn up during your initial appointment, you will also be informed of the final price for your dental correction.

Only when you decide for the treatment and sign the contract, costs are incurred. Of course, you can also refuse them if the Invisalign prices seem too high.

How high are the Invisalign costs really?

Some Invisalign partner dentists publish price examples on their websites. Also, based on the experiences of former patients, we can tell you approximately what Invisalign costs you should expect.

Please note, however, that these are only examples. Only after a detailed examination and a consultation will you find out how high the Invisalign costs will be in your case.

If only the front teeth are to be corrected as part of a short-term treatment, Invisalign prices already start at around 1600 euros (Invisalign i7).

The next level is Invisalign Lite, where moderately severe malocclusions of the front and/or side teeth are corrected. The Invisalign costs here start at about 2500 euros.

For malocclusions with bite correction that require significantly more effort to correct, Invisalign Full is suitable. Here you have to reckon with at least 6000 euros.

Invisible braces are also suitable for teenagers under 18 in some cases. Prices for Invisalign Teen treatment start at around 3000 euros, depending on the severity of the malposition.

How much does a case refinement cost with Invisalign?

Case Refinement refers to post-treatment when the desired outcome was not achieved after completion of the original treatment plan.

With Invisalign Lite and Invisalign i7, two case refinements are included in the price. After the treatment can be specifically ordered twice up to 14 new splints free of charge.

If patients are still not satisfied, they must pay the Invisalign costs for further refinements themselves. Each additional set costs 135 euros.

The situation is different with Invisalign Full. Here are infinite Case Refinements included in the price. Patients can order aligners until they are one hundred percent satisfied with the result.

Invisalign Prices: What are the costs for Case Refinement?

Following dental treatment, the retention phase begins, which is at least as important as the actual dental treatment.

This is because the teeth that have loosened during treatment with Invisalign are stabilized here.

In addition to loose retainer braces, fixed retainers that remain permanently in the mouth can also be used for this purpose.

Invisalign prices also vary from dentist to dentist for retainers. Removable retainers cost approx. 270 euros in a set of 3 (for both jaws).

Invisalign costs for fixed retainers start at around 250 euros per jaw.

Can the Invisalign costs be paid in installments?

All Invisalign partner dentists and orthodontists usually offer an installment plan. Because, of course, it is not always possible to pay several thousand euros directly.

Individual financing plans are usually agreed upon for this purpose, based on the patient’s wishes and financial possibilities.

This way, the financial burden can be spread over a longer period of time. For smaller misalignments, rates start at about 40 euros per month.

Before signing a contract, however, it is worth comparing the conditions. Because while some dentists offer zero-percent financing, others charge steep interest rates.

A brief conclusion on the subject of Invisalign costs

If you suffer from a serious malocclusion that cannot be treated with “regular” aligners, we can clearly recommend Invisalign.

Even in the case of severe malocclusions, such as a pronounced overbite or underbite, the invisible aligneroffer you the possibility of discreet tooth correction.

Even if the prices for Invisalign Full seem daunting at first glance: Invisalign fact, fixed braces cost just as much or even more.

So if you definitely don’t want wires and brackets in your mouth, Invisalign is a good choice. Even teenagers from around 15 years of age can benefit from discreet teeth straightening with Invisalign.

Do you only need an esthetic correction of the front teeth or do you only have a slight to moderate malocclusion?

Then we clearly recommend cheaper providers like DrSmile. This is because the company offers very good value for money and communicates its prices transparently.

Only high-quality materials and state-of-the-art technologies are used in the production “made in Germany & USA”.

Through the app, the course of treatment is regularly monitored and kept in view by dentists and orthodontists. Last but not least, DrSmile offers a satisfaction promise.
