The cost of Invisalign is a common query for most new Invisalign patients and people who want to undergo Invisalign treatment. To get the exact cost of your Invisalign treatment, you may have to contact your dental practice for a quote.
However, the guide below would give you an idea of the cost of Invisalign in the UK and everything your Invisalign treatment should include.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an excellent teeth-straightening option. It involves using several sets of clear, removable aligners. You would have to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and switch to a new set to properly align your teeth gradually.
Invisalign is a good alternative to traditional braces, which involves fitting metal brackets and wires. Millions of persons have used Invisalign to achieve their perfect smile.

You would need a consultation with the orthodontist to examine your teeth and determine your suitability for Invisalign. If you can get Invisalign, your orthodontist will create a personalised quote for the treatment, depending on the severity of your teeth misalignment.
Comparing Invisalign cost
Dentists and orthodontists can offer Invisalign treatment provided they are certified Invisalign providers. The Invisalign provider will determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment and other procedures needed to achieve a perfect smile.
Most Invisalign providers charge a fixed price for Invisalign, but some charge the different stages of Invisalign treatment separately.
The different approaches of costing Invisalign treatment make comparing the cost of Invisalign more difficult. Ensure you ask the Invisalign provider for a list of what your treatment includes and their cost. The list should include the cost of the following:
- Dental check during your consultation
- Photos, digital scans and x-rays
- All appointments, including emergencies
- Dental hygiene appointment before your treatment
- All sets of Invisalign aligners, including attachments
- IPR (to create more space for teeth movement) if necessary
- Home teeth whitening
- Teeth contouring
- Fixed or removable retainers
- One year aftercare, including dental check-up
Teeth contouring and home teeth whitening may be subject to the individual’s need.
Ensure you consider the quality of service provided by the Invisalign provider and their expertise – you can talk to the provider about their experience and qualification. You can also ask the provider for before and after photos of their previous Invisalign patients.
Opting for an orthodontist for your Invisalign may be the best option because orthodontists undergo additional training in orthodontics and pass an exam to register as a specialist in orthodontics.
Most Invisalign providers offer patients with different financing options to make the treatment more affordable. The financing options are interest-free and allow patients to spread the cost of their treatment over a couple of months. The options usually vary, so you would have to look for a provider that offers a suitable plan.
Some practices allow you to make an initial deposit of £500 and spread the other payments over 6 – 18 months. You may also have an interest-bearing payment option to allow you to pay for the treatment over 60 months.
