Our top priority is for you to be able to get the dental services that will improve your dental health and overall confidence. We don’t want patients to completely miss out simply because of cost, which is why we discuss several financial options.
We want you to be able to visit our Invisalign dentist at Brentwood Dental Group risk-free, which is why first offer a free consultation to find out if Invisalign aligners are right for you. Call our local dentist office in Brentwood, MO, for an appointment.
Multiple Ways to Pay for Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign clear aligners are so effective for so many patients. We want to help you invest in the Invisalign process. In the long-term, your dental health will be better for it, and you could even save money later, if Invisalign helps prevent problems for you.
There are many ways to bring Invisalign costs down. Look through the following options to see which ones could help you.
You may have dental insurance, either through an employer or a private policy. You can look through your policy, or call your company or HR professional, to find out:
- Does your policy help with orthodontics?
- Does it cover Invisalign aligners too?
- Does it pay for a percentage of orthodontics?
Let us know at the dental clinic if you need help with these questions, because we can also call your insurance company and get these answers for you.
FSA or HSA Funds
Your current insurance plan (or a past one) might give you cash to spend on health services, including visits to the orthodontist. This can come from a:
- Flexible Spending Account (FSA): Your policy will specify an amount of cash per year you can spend.
- Health Savings Account (HSA): This adds cash every year to a real bank account, which can be carried forward and even transferred between policies.
You can use these funds without paying taxes, if you spend them on certain services. Check with your policy administrator to find out if family dental care and clear teeth aligners qualify.
At our local dentist office in Brentwood, we accept LendingPoint, which is a company that offers personal loans for certain expenses, such as aesthetic dentistry and Invisalign trays. You can apply to LendingPoint with no effect on your credit score.
If you have a FICO score of 580 or better, you have at least an 80% chance to be approved; plus, there’s no risk to you for checking.
You also don’t need any money down to get started with your local orthodontist. LendingPoint will ask for your:
- Bank statements.
- Job history.
- Income verification.
Pre-qualification can tell you the interest rate you can expect, which will often be better than you would get from a credit card.
We also feature CareCredit at our family dental practice, which helps pay for restorative dentistry, orthodontics, and other services. An application places a hard inquiry on your credit history, which can affect your credit score slightly.
CareCredit gives you a permanent medical credit card, which you can use for many different medical and dental services. You can use it for Invisalign aligners first, pay it off, then use it for general dentistry, an emergency dentist visit, or any other services you need.
Other Payment Options
You can combine some of the above methods. For example:
- Your insurance could reduce your overall Invisalign price.
- An FSA could pay for part of it.
- A CareCredit card could pay off the rest.
There are other combinations that could work. It’s important that you explore a few options, because getting your perfect Invisalign smile might be easier than you expect.
