How Much Do Braces Cost?

Millions of people undergo orthodontic treatment to achieve their ideal smile. This not only corrects oral misalignment, but also helps to improve your oral health. Braces are among the most effective orthodontic solutions for correcting misaligned teeth.

What Is The Average Cost Of Braces?

The cost of braces varies depending on the following factors:

  • The type of braces: Metal braces are normally the most cost effective option, ranging from $3,000 to $7,000. Ceramic braces will usually cost between $4,000 and $8,000. These coloured braces blend with your teeth, making them less noticeable. Lingual braces are planted behind the teeth, making them completely unnoticeable to others. However, they are the most expensive at $8,000 to $10,000.
  • Additional services: There is a chance that you might need additional services before or after receiving your braces. Such as professional dental cleaning, cavity filling, tooth removal and/or a retainer. All these factors can contribute to the price of your overall treatment.
