When our patients come in for their complimentary orthodontic consultation: they often want to know three things:
Will braces or clear aligners help me?
How long will my treatment take?
How much will braces cost?
Our Coast Dental team will make sure you know the answer to all three of these questions, plus any other questions you have, before you leave your first appointment.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
The cost of braces depends on several factors: the severity of the case, the type of treatment, and the length of treatment. Your out-of-pocket costs also depend on whether your health insurance or dental insurance will cover part of the cost.
You can pay for your orthodontic treatment or your child’s orthodontic treatment in a number of ways. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards. We also accept more than 200 dental insurance plans, and will file claims for you.
Here are some of the ways you may find it easy to fit orthodontic treatment into your family budget:
Your dental insurance policy may offer orthodontic benefits.
You may be able to use the savings if you have a healthcare Flexible Spending Account
CareCredit and other third-party financing companies offer low monthly payment plans to qualified applicants.*
Special offers for patients without dental insurance
Extended family and friends may contribute to a smile fund in lieu of birthday presents and holiday gifts
Having braces can change your life. We had one patient who was so embarrassed by her crooked teeth, she would hold her hand over her mouth. She worked from home because she didn’t want anyone to see her. After treatment, she couldn’t believe the difference. Having a beautiful, straight smile gave her the self-confidence she needed to apply for a new job, start dating, and change her life in a ways both big and small. Every patient’s reason for wanting braces is different; we look forward to hearing yours.
The first step is to come in for a complimentary orthodontic consultation so you can see how braces or clear aligners can help you. Our team will present you with all your options so you can make the best decision for you.
