I read online that some are offering it for 400-500 dollars. Is my orthodontist adding the rest for personal profit?
Is $780 Too Expensive for 4 Sets of Vivera Retainers?

Truth: the actual cost of the retainers is the same for every orthodontist around the world. That said prices can vary for many reasons. The fee you were told is very reasonable.I can tell you $400 is just covering the lab bill. Unfortunately the lab bill is not the only expense in getting you those Vivera retainers.
That is a very fair fee
