How Much Do Braces Cost?

As with most dental treatments, we are unable to provide you with a fixed price without examining your unique situation. Various factors can influence the cost of your braces, such as:

  • The complexity of your misalignment
  • The length of time your treatment will take
  • Your level of insurance coverage

After looking over your mouth and determining your specific needs, Dr. Tamara Jones can give you a personalized cost estimate.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Braces?

It depends on the specifics of your plan. Some dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of orthodontic treatment. Others may not cover them at all, especially if you’re only seeking treatment for cosmetic reasons.

Unlike the majority of private orthodontic practices, we are proud to be in-network with several popular dental insurance providers. Because of this, we’re able to save patients an average of 20% on their care. Here are some of the providers with whom we can offer in-network savings:

  • Aetna
  • BlueCross BlueShield
  • Cigna
  • Delta Dental
  • Guardian
  • Humana
  • MetLife
  • Principal
  • United Concordia
  • And more!

Even if our office is not in-network with your insurance plan, we may still be able to help you save. We can look over the details of your policy and file claims on your behalf to maximize your benefits.

Can I Get Financing to Pay for Braces?

Yes! If your insurance does not cover orthodontics, or if you need additional help funding your treatment, we can help you apply for one of our simple, flexible in-house payment plans. Rather than having to pay the entire cost of your treatment up front, we can break it up into manageable monthly installments. That way, you can make your dream smile a reality without breaking the bank!

Will My Flexible Spending Account Cover Braces?

Many employers offer Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), which entails setting aside a percentage of each paycheck for certain medical treatments. After incurring qualified medical costs, you can submit your receipt to your FSA for reimbursement.

In many cases, orthodontic treatments are eligible for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers FSAs and you’d like to invest in a healthier, more attractive smile, we encourage you to ask your workplace’s benefits department to find out whether they can help you mitigate the cost.
