Invisalign is a teeth-straightening method consisting of invisible aligners that are custom made to fit each individual. The cost of the Invisalign system can vary based on each individual's needs.
Invisalign aligners provide a straighter smile in a discreet manner because they are almost completely clear. They are also removable, allowing the user to eat certain foods and to brush and floss teeth normally.
Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect speech, causing a slight lisp, which should go away after a day or two when the tongue gets used to the aligner.
You cannot chew gum while wearing the aligners, and smoking is not recommended because the aligners could become discolored.
Some people may experience a little discomfort at the beginning of each new stage of Invisalign, as the teeth are being pushed together. This should only last a day or two.
The cost of Invisalign is based on the lab fee as well as the dental office fee. Because each case is unique, the price can vary from $3,500 to $7,000.
