We strive to give excellent orthodontic care and offer quality services while helping you stay within your budget at Lincoln Orthodontics. We will be straight with you about steps moving forward and the cost of braces upfront before any treatment or decisions are made. Typically, the type of braces does not impact the cost of braces as much as the specific treatment plan. Our team is always happy to chat about any questions you might have.
Are the Costs Different for Each Braces Option?
At Lincoln Orthodontics, we believe that patients should be able to choose their treatment type based on their own aesthetic goals and not based on price, which is why we offer both our braces options at the same cost. However, just like every person is different, every smile and treatment plan is unique in its own way.
Treatment plan factors that CAN change the cost of braces may include:
- Treatment time
- Treatment difficulty
- Unique bite corrections
- Overall treatment goals
Many people ask what the cost of braces will be, but unfortunately there is no straightforward answer to that question until after each patient’s free consultation with Dr. Willett. We encourage you to get a free consultation and go from there.
Our financial coordinator will be sure to discuss all of these factors and options with you before any plan is approved and any payment is made.
What Braces Options are Offered at Lincoln Orthodontics?
We offer two options for our patients who are in need of treatment with braces.
Our most popular option for braces is metal braces. This treatment is primarily made with materials that work together to straighten your smile over time, including:
- Metal brackets
- A metal wire
- Orthodontic bands
- Occasionally with metal braces treatment, elastic ties will be added to your daily routine for bite correction.
With metal braces, You can count on the strength, durability, and affordability of traditional metal braces as they are repeatedly the top form of treatment for orthodontic patients year after year, across the world.
Another great option for braces treatment is ceramic braces. At Lincoln Orthodontics, our clear braces are smaller brackets and are usually paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties – making them almost invisible. This option is especially attractive if you are an aesthetic-minded adult or teen.
The main differences between the two options are:
- The materials they are made with
- The look of them on the patient’s teeth
- Their durability
Because ceramic braces are smaller and not made of metal, something to note is that they do have a higher tendency to chip or crack under pressure or after being hit.
What Payment Options Are Accepted for the Cost of Braces?
Our goal is always to help our patients get the smile they have always dreamed of while providing high-quality care and services.
