There are many different options when it comes to braces. There are your standard metal braces, ceramic, lingual and many more. However, people prefer having a less visible set of braces. There are many reasons why someone would prefer clear braces over the others so below will be some information on clear braces and their price in the UK.
What Are Clear Braces?
Clear braces are actually the middle ground between your standard metal braces and a brace called Invisalign. From the name, you would expect them to be the transparent gum-shield style braces. However, this is not true.
In fact, clear braces look and work the same as your conventional braces. The big difference being that the materials used are clear. This means the braces once fitted, are a lot less visible that the standard braces.
Price in the US
The big question when it comes to dentistry and braces is cost. We all know that if you are over the age of 18, then you will most likely have to pay more for the treatment. In the end, this could cost you a small fortune.
The prices given in this article are based on data pulled from dentists. Therefore, we will be giving a rough pricing range that you can expect to pay.
Metal braces: The most common braces were originally the metal brace. A lot of younger children had them as they could pick the colour. For these braces, getting them fitted by a private dentist is going to cost you in the ball park of $3000-4500.
Clear braces: More people who require braces are opting in for clear braces due to their minimal look. Clear materials mean a less visible brace and with that comes a slightly higher price tag. Clear braces can cost you roughly $3500-8000.
If you are looking for a less visible brace, then going for clear braces might be your best choice. They may cost more, but ultimately, they are less visible.
