If you or your child is in need of orthodontic work, you are probably wondering “What is the cost of braces?”.  The answer depends on many factors including your insurance coverage and the type of braces.  It is important to remember that properly aligned teeth are essential for oral health, thus making orthodontic treatment a necessity.  Simply Smile Orthodontics will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your individual needs and budget

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Braces?

Dental insurance often covers part of the cost of braces.  How much your plan will cover depends on your particular policy.  Some providers cover braces for patients of all ages and some only cover braces for children.   The best way to determine your out of pocket cost of braces is to contact your insurance provider.

Tax Deduction

Because braces are a health necessity, the cost is usually tax deductible.  When figuring out the cost of braces, you should take the tax savings into account.  It is important to keep track of all of your out of pocket expenses because there is a minimum amount needed to qualify for a tax deduction.  For more information, visit the IRS’s medical and dental expense page.

Payment Options

Simply Smiles Orthodontics understands that not everyone can pay for braces in one lump sum.  We offer low and no-interest financing options through CareCredit and Chase Health Advanced.  We also provide discounts to patients who pay the full cost up front.  Simply Smiles also offers discounts to families who have more than one member receiving treatment at the same time.
