Best Invisalign Dentist in Boston
Want straight teeth without braces or veneers?
Invisalign is a system of custom fit, clear retainers that function in a similar fashion as teeth braces. Many people wonder what the Invisalign cost is. According to the Invisalign website, the cost of these clear braces range from $1800-$7100, which is about the same as braces cost. So when you ask, “how much is invisalign” or, “how much does Invisalign cost?” our answer is that investment in cosmetic dentistry is priceless. You can also pay for the braces price with your HSA or FSA.
All our patients receive Invisalign VIP when straightening their teeth with BCOH.
How is Invisalign different from different types of braces?
As an alternative to lingual braces, Invisalign is a teeth straightening process that does not use ceramic braces, braces rubber bands, or metal braces. There are multiple sets of aligners, or “invisible braces”, that gradually shift your teeth to the desired location. Each of these clear aligners are worn for approximately 2 weeks. Unlike dental braces, Invisalign braces are able to be removed while you eat and drink, and are simple and easy to put back on. As opposed to adult braces, these clear teeth aligners are removable and easily replaceable.

What do the steps for this orthodontic treatment look like?
First, we take impressions and x-rays of your teeths starting locations. These are then sent to the lab, and Invisalign puts together a video of where your teeth are now, and the process of them moving to their final destination. Once you approve the video, the lab fabricates your trays and we deliver them to you. After treatment is complete, a set of clear retainers are fabricated for you to be worn at night. This Invisalign retainer helps to “remind” your teeth of where they should remain. Many patients also opt for ZOOM Whitening upon completion of their invisible aligners.
Braces vs Invisalign
After one of our Boston dentists takes impressions of your teeth and has a series of custom-made aligners fabricated, treatment will involve wearing each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before a new set is introduced. With each new set, teeth will be moved into a straighter position until your treatment is complete. Unlike braces, these clear aligners can conveniently be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.You’ll achieve straight teeth and a confident smile with little interference in your daily life.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Patients will often have a metal retainer created to ensure long-lasting results with regular wear at night time. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will ensure that your straight teeth remain healthy for years to come.
