Insurance & Financing

“Unlike that fancy car, your new smile is an excellent long-term investment that will last a lifetime!”

How much?

Once you’ve decided that you or your child needs braces or Invisalign, the next big question is how much is it going to cost? Many people dread the answer, so they assume a very high number and put off treatment until that “someday,” alongside bucket list items of dream vacations and buying a fancy car. But braces and Invisalign can be much more affordable than you think, and with flexible payment options, you do not have to wait to reap the benefits of having a beautiful smile!

Very often, orthodontic treatment is a life-transforming experience. Unlike that fancy car, it is an excellent long-term investment for yourself or your child. Countless studies show that improving a person’s smile will boost his or her self-confidence, career, and social status. A beautiful smile helps you put your best foot forward every day, from job interviews to blind dates, and the little differences can snowball to transforming your life altogether. This is specifically why I chose to specialize and become an orthodontist – to put a smile on people’s faces and positively impact their lives. As an orthodontist, my goal is to create a signature smile for you that will warm people’s hearts and open doors to new opportunities. And that smile will be yours to keep forever.

Your overall investment for braces or Invisalign will depend on several factors, such as the difficulty of the case and the treatment duration among others. In Portland, the fee for a standard orthodontic treatment ranges from $3,000 for limited cases to $7,000 for extensive cases, and most cases fall somewhere in this range. For most patients, this translates to $150-200 per month during treatment.
