Are you interested in so-called lingual braces as a modern and less conspicuous alternative to metal braces? If so, then you are probably curious about how much it is going to cost you. Are invisible braces more expensive? Maybe, but most people would agree that you cannot gauge the value of these braces by the price tag alone.
Also known as “incognito” braces, dental experts often applaud lingual braces as one of the best available alternatives to traditional metal braces that most people find too unsightly. That said, you certainly would want to know if these braces are something that you can afford and how they differ from conventional braces.
In this piece, we will help you check prices for lingual braces in Canberra. More importantly, we will take a good look at how it works and a few other similar treatments that you might want to consider. Only then can you determine whether it is the right orthodontic solution for you.
The price of getting lingual braces
So the question remains – how much are lingual braces? Well on average, incognito braces can set you back at least $7500 (single arch) and up to $12,500 for a full treatment. It is a considerable amount, to say the least even with financing or insurance covering a portion of the cost. Of course, you can say the same thing about conventional metal braces which cost about $4500 to $8000 on average. Still, most people would agree that the added cost is worth it especially if you dread the idea of having to wear metal wires and brackets to align your teeth properly.
How does it work?
So what are invisible braces made out of? How do they work? Some dental experts like to refer to them as “braces behind teeth” since that is just what it looks like; the metal braces are fitted accurately behind each tooth so that they remain unseen when viewed from the front.
Of course, lingual braces are significantly much harder to work with which explains the higher cost. Unlike regular metal braces, Incognito braces are made of gold-nickel alloy and are also custom made for each tooth.
What about Invisalign and ceramic braces?
Of course, Incognito braces are not the only alternative available as far as “invisible braces” are concerned. There are other choices like ceramic braces and Invisalign braces. These differ from Incognito braces as they mainly cover the teeth concealing imperfections and straightening the teeth in the process. Also, there are no metallic wires and brackets involved at all. Still, most people prefer incognito braces due to its numerous advantages that you may want to consider:
- Shorter treatment period; lingual dental braces are non-removable and constantly supply the necessary pressure on each tooth to influence proper alignment. Unlike Invisalign braces, there is no risk of not wearing the dental appliance long enough to yield results
- Better control over tooth movement and proper positioning; equally as efficient as traditional metal dental braces minus the undesirable appearance.
- Effective for just about any kind of instance of dental misalignment
- Minimal discomfort and side effects like slurred speech
