The best way to get an accurate quote on the cost of invisible braces is to talk to an orthodontist. However, it is possible to estimate the price.
The average cost of invisible braces is between $4,000 and $7,400 for Invisalign and $4,000 to $8,000 for ceramic braces. This price estimate is only slightly higher than regular braces ($3,000 to $7,000).
