Do you want to straighten your teeth, but are hesitant to wear metal braces? Today, you have more options.
Dr. Bruce Wilderman offers Invisalign® clear aligners to straighten your smile without the restrictions of traditional orthodontics.
Why are more and more patients choosing Invisalign?
Straighten Your Teeth without the Hassle using Invisalign
Treatment with Invisalign® consists of customized straightening trays that are replaced every two weeks. The trays act as invisible braces that gradually realign your teeth until you achieve your ideal smile. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® invisible braces can be removed for brief periods to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Invisalign® offers an innovative way to perfect your smile without anyone knowing. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Bruce Wilderman in Doylestown, serving all of Bucks County and the greater Philadelphia area, to learn more about Invisalign® invisible braces, your candidacy, and treatment costs.
Invisalign® Treatment Process
The Invisalign® process is simple and occurs in several stages. During your initial consultation with Dr. Wilderman at the Doylestown office of Artistic Expressions Dentistry, he will help you decide whether Invisalign® invisible braces are the ideal option to fit your dental and aesthetic needs. After your diagnosis, he will create your customized treatment plan and take digital images of your mouth.
The digital images serve a dual purpose. The first is to create a digital 3-D image of the alignment of your teeth that gives you a glimpse of what your smile may look like during and after treatment with Invisalign® invisible braces. The second is to help create the twenty to thirty customized alignment trays that will progressively straighten your teeth during your treatment. The number of Invisalign® trays you require depends on the severity of your bite problem. Dr. Wilderman will work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your health needs and cosmetic goals.
Understanding Your Invisalign Cost
Although Invisalign® cost can vary substantially on a case-by-case basis, Dr. Wilderman determines the total amount largely based on your specific needs and treatment time required. During an initial consultation, Dr. Wilderman can evaluate your concerns and goals. By determining your treatment timeline, we can then provide you a more accurate estimate of your total treatment costs.
Variables That Affect Invisalign Cost
According to the manufacturer's estimates, Invisalign treatment can cost between $3,500 and $8,000, but the actual number varies from patient to patient. That said, there are various factors that will all need to be considered.
Complexity of Treatment
The complexity and severity of your misalignment can have a significant impact on your treatment expense. Patients with minor misalignment require less up-front planning and will enjoy results more quickly, both of which can reduce costs. Those with more complicated cases of misalignment will require more advanced treatment with specialized aligners and a greater number of appointments in our office, raising the overall costs of Invisalign treatment.
To ensure that you get the most coverage from your insurance plan, our staff will work closely with you to correctly submit the necessary documentation.
The treatment timeline is the amount of time you will need to use Invisalign to achieve optimal alignment. Most patients need to wear the aligners for an average of 12 months, while some may need the treatment for as little as six months. Shorter treatments require fewer sets of custom-created aligners, which can help lower the costs related to fabrication and materials.
Most insurance plans cover orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, up to a certain amount. To ensure that you get the most coverage from your insurance plan, our staff will work closely with you to correctly submit the necessary documentation. We want you to pay as little out-of-pocket as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of Invisalign treatment on any budget.
Financing Your Orthodontic Treatment
We understand that financing any portion of Invisalign treatment not covered by insurance can be stressful. Dr. Wilderman and our staff will work with you to help you choose a financing plan that allows you to achieve your ideal smile without compromising your goals. Our office accepts credit cards and CareCredit® financing, which can make any out-of-pocket costs more manageable. No matter what your financial concerns are, our staff is committed to working within your budget.
