Straightening Teeth Without Braces: Cost, Options, and Insurance Coverage

Straightening your teeth without braces is possible with custom-made aligners. These aligners are made of soft, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that is placed over the top of the teeth. You'll put on a set of aligners every two weeks until your treatment is complete. The cost of straightening your teeth depends on the severity of your condition and the type of treatment you are undergoing.

You can use a flexible spending account (FSA), a health savings account (HSA), or dental insurance to cover some of the costs. Braces are the most effective way to straighten crooked teeth, and invisible braces are a popular choice for people who want to avoid the look of traditional metal braces, but still have straight teeth. Another option is to realign the jaw so that the teeth can be joined together correctly. It's important to have a licensed orthodontist oversee your dental care through in-person visits.
