When it comes to choosing the right orthodontic treatment for you, there’s a lot you need to take into account. The biggest deterrent our patients have when choosing to get braces is the cost associated with their treatment. We’re here to tell you there’s no reason to fret over the cost of your orthodontic treatment, even when it comes to specialty treatments like ceramic braces. Let’s take a deep dive into paying for ceramic braces in a way that won’t break the bank.
Why Choose Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are an orthodontic treatment similar to traditional metal braces but utilize small, ceramic brackets that discretely blend into the teeth’s natural appearance. Ceramic braces are the perfect happy medium between the durability of traditional metal braces and the seemingly invisible appearance of invisible aligner trays like Invisalign®. Patients who choose ceramic braces still need to be aware of what they eat and drink in order to lower the risk of breaking a ceramic bracket but don’t have to worry about the unsightly appearance that comes with traditional metal wires and brackets.
Average Cost of Ceramic Braces
According to studies done in the United States, the average cost of ceramic braces can be anywhere between $4,000 and $8,000. Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Wow, that’s a lot of money!” And, realistically, orthodontic treatment can sound a little pricey. But, it’s important to keep in mind this is an average cost, meaning the true cost of your orthodontic treatment is ultimately going to rely on your specific treatment plan and how well you take care of your braces throughout the duration of your treatment process.
Payment Options for Braces
Paying for your braces doesn’t have to be as scary as it sounds. Yes, it will likely amount to a total of a few thousand dollars, but you’re not in this alone. At Savage, Sabol and Visser Orthodontics, we provide you with many different options that allow you to lower the cost of your treatment plan. Three factors you need to always consider are insurance, financing, and specials.
If you have dental insurance, it’s very likely that the insurance plan will cover a certain portion of your orthodontic treatment. We’ll make sure we coordinate with your insurance provider to provide you with the most insurance coverage possible and keep your treatment costs low.
No interest payment plans are always a wonderful option to break down your total bill into smaller, more manageable monthly payments that may better suit your budget. Ask us if no interest payment plans are a good option for you at your consultation.
What surprises many of our patients is our regular specials. These specials are deals that allow our patients to lower the cost of their orthodontic treatment with no strings attached. Make sure you check in on our specials regularly to see when you can be saving some cash.
