Invisalign Costs Compared

The cost of Invisalign

The average cost of Invisalign in the UK is from £1,500 to £5,500. However, the average cost will invariably depend on your city.

For example, London is typically more expensive. Our prices for Invisalign begin from £1,500 for the Lite version of the system. It’s important to remember that the average UK wearer seeking Invisalign for moderate and severe bite problems like overbites and underbites can typically expect to pay around £4,000.

Why costs might vary

  1. The costs of Invisalign will vary from practice to practice as factors like location provider level come into play.
  2. The cost of Invisalign will vary depending on the complexity of your bite or smile problem, as it will dictate the type of Invisalign you will need to straighten your teeth. For example, Invisalign Full costs more than Invisalign Lite because it uses fewer aligners and takes less time.
  3. Invisalign is often presented as a price for both upper and lower teeth, so in most cases, patients can halve the treatment cost to learn the true cost of straightening their teeth if they only want to straighten one arch.

The cost of Invisalign compared to fixed braces

  • Fixed braces cost between £2,000 and £5,000
  • Lingual braces cost from £5,000
  • Ceramic braces cost from £2,000
  • Six Month Smiles cost from £2,500

Believe it or not, compared to other braces like fixed options, Invisalign can be more cost-effective and affordable. However, Invisalign typically costs less for patients with mild and moderate bite problems than for more complex conditions involving a larger degree of tooth movement. The more complex your case, the more Invisalign will cost.

The cost of Invisalign compared to other clear aligners

  • Spark aligners cost from £1,775 per jaw
  • Strayt aligners cost from £700
  • AlignerCo aligners cost from £747
  • ClearCorrect aligners cost from £1,195

As Invisalign is the most popular aligner, with many patients knowing what the brand is and seeking it as a primary option, other clear aligners stand out in the market because they offer lower prices. Most aligners are similar to Invisalign, but Invisalign uses a patented material, which means there’s no true replica on the market.

So, in this case, Invisalign is likely to be the most expensive aligner option compared to competitor brands, hoping to appeal to customers who want to spend as little as possible.

The cost of Invisalign compared to other cosmetic treatments

If you have mild or moderate crowding or crooked teeth, these can be masked with other treatments, such as composite bonding or veneers. Typically, you won’t need a full mouth of veneers but only a select few to improve the misaligned areas of your smile.

Composite bonding costs £350 per tooth, and dental veneers cost £500. Depending on the number of teeth affected, these can be far more affordable than Invisalign.
