How Much Do Braces Cost?

At Elegant Orthodontics, we want to make braces as affordable as possible and offer financing through OrthoFi along with accepting cash, checks and major credit cards. Our staff strives to be knowledgeable about the cost and financing to make the process easier and less stressful.

Does Dental Insurance Cover the Cost of Braces?

Some dental insurance plans provide coverage for braces; however, most do so as an elective charge for coverage. We can help determine if a patient’s dental insurance policy provides coverage to help plan for the added expense. If it has not already been added to a policy prior to seeking treatment, it may be added the following year.

Are Braces an Allowable Expense with Flexible Spending Accounts?

Flexible spending may be used to pay for braces. It is necessary to know the parameters of an FSA to ensure proper credit within the plan. We provide documentation for proof of payment to help make the process easier.
