How do they compare on cost?


Options for every budget

Treatment can range from $3,000 to $10,000, but this covers many different types of treatment. The most economical treatment is traditional metal braces. On the other end of the scale is lingual braces, which are generally the most expensive.
All other types of treatment sit somewhere in the middle and the cost will depend on how simple or complex your issues. If straight teeth are important but you’d like a few added features, like aesthetics or faster treatment, then you might expect to pay a little bit more.

How do you feel when you smile?

“When I smile, I know my teeth aren’t straight, so I smile with my mouth closed. I always feel awkward in photos, my confidence has left me and I just don’t know where to start.”
