Although Invisalign® cost can vary substantially on a case-by-case basis, Dr. Bruce J. Wilderman determines the total amount largely based on your specific needs and treatment time required. During an initial consultation at his Philadelphia, PA, office, 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

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.
