Only your orthodontist can determine the cost, based on your specific needs

In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, as with other medical treatments, only your orthodontist can determine the cost, based on your specific needs. Other factors may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment, and where you live.

Fees to close gaps between teeth depend on what method chosen

When dealing with gaps in teeth, there are two choices: restorative or moving teeth (orthodontics). Each choice has choices.


• Composite bonding (plastic tooth colored filling material)
• Porcelain Veneers


• Invisalign Express (small gap)
• Invisalign Full (large gap)
• Brackets

The fee could range from a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars, depending on method and skill of the dentist. The BEST thing to do would be schedule a consultation with a dentist or orthodontist (or both) that you trust and ask for options and associated fees.

Closing gaps in teeth

Depending on your individual goals, you might use limited orthodontics (a few hundred dollars), bonding ($500-$1000), porcelain veneers ($2000-$10,000) or Invisalign ($5000-$7000) to close the gap. Schedule a consultation visit with your dentist or orthodontist to discuss your goals for your teeth/smile, and your dentist will give you options to reach those goals. Good Luck!
