How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

An official Invisalign treatment can cost anywhere between $5,000-$7,000, which understandably puts it out of reach for some people. That doesn’t even include the cost of any replacement aligners you may need along the way! Fortunately, Nu Smile Aligners offers the same high-quality care at a far more affordable price. Our aligners are just $2,500 for a complete treatment no matter the severity of your orthodontic issues, plus all-inclusive aligners! Read on to learn more about why the cost of Invisalign in Barnegat is so much higher than Nu Smile Aligners.

Invisalign Has Fluctuating Prices

No two Invisalign treatments cost exactly the same because the final price depends heavily on the unique situation. Your age, the severity of your orthodontic issue, your ability to stick to the treatment plan, and numerous other factors will change how much your Invisalign treatment costs in the end. This can make estimating the cost of your new smile nearly impossible ahead of time without a consultation.

At Nu Smile Aligners, we believe you shouldn’t have to guess about the price of your care. That’s why every Nu Smile Aligner treatment is just $2,500 no matter what! Even better, this flat cost includes all-inclusive aligners, so even if your plan takes longer than expected, you won’t need to pay extra.

Invisalign Isn’t Made Locally

Why are Nu Smile Aligners thousands of dollars less expensive than Invisalign? For the most part, it has to do with where the aligners and treatment plan are made. Invisalign aligners are printed in Mexico, and the treatment plans are made in Costa Rica. This means that the cost of Invisalign in Barnegat needs to include the shipping and handling costs of getting your aligners and treatment plan back to the United States. As you may expect, this can be quite pricey! We’re proud to cut out the long-distance hassle and pass on our savings to our patients. Nu Smile Aligners are designed and printed right here in New Jersey, so you don’t need to pay thousands of extra dollars to get them.

The Cost Of Invisalign Aligner Replacements

Try as you might, accidents happen. Maybe you accidentally threw away your aligners after lunch, or maybe they broke when you bit down on something hard. Whatever the reason, you may accidentally lose or break an aligner during your treatment. With Invisalign, any time you need a new set of aligners, you’ll need to pay extra for them. Alternatively, with Nu Smile Aligners, you can enjoy unlimited aligners for no added fee!

How to Make Your Treatment Affordable

Nu Smile Aligners can help you save thousands of dollars on your orthodontic treatment, but the savings don’t stop there. To help make your new smile as affordable as possible, we offer $110/month financing for 24 months! For less than the cost of getting a $5 coffee every day, you can easily fit your brand-new smile into your monthly budget.

How Effective Is Invisalign?

Even though Nu Smile Aligners are thousands of dollars less expensive than Invisalign, but they’ve been proven to be just as effective as well! Our clear aligner system is a great choice for teens and adults alike who are interested in correcting mild to moderate cases of crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth. Nu Smile Aligners can also help you achieve a healthier bite and overcome issues like underbite, overbite, crossbite, and open bite.

The Invisalign Process

Straightening your smile with Nu Smile Aligners follows a very similar process to that of Invisalign. You’ll wear a series of custom-made aligners that are designed to gradually shift your teeth into place. Each set of aligners will take you one step closer to a healthier, straighter smile! However, there are two key differences in the Invisalign process and our process for Nu Smile Aligners:

  • You don’t need to pay for extra aligners with Nu Smile Aligners. With Invisalign, the more aligners you need, the more expensive your treatment will be. You’ll also need to pay for any replacement aligners you may need if you lose or break a set. With Nu Smile Aligners, you’ll enjoy unlimited, all-inclusive aligners.
  • Your Nu Smile Aligners are made right here in New Jersey. Invisalign aligners are designed and fabricated outside of the United States, which adds a lot of extra time and money to your treatment. Alternatively, we create our Nu Smile Aligners right here in New Jersey!

Creating Your Treatment Plan

Patient learning how Invisalign in Barnegat works

If you’re ready to begin your journey towards a straighter smile, your first step will be to see your dentist for a consultation. During this initial visit, your dentist will make sure that clear aligners are the best way for you to achieve the results you’re looking for. They’ll also be able to tell if you need any preliminary treatment for cavities or gum disease.

If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign or Nu Smile Aligners, a custom treatment plan will be made. This will include estimates for the treatment timeline and price. Invisalign patients won’t know the approximate cost for their treatment until this point. Alternatively, Nu Smile Aligners come at a set price no matter what your treatment plan looks like. Before your consultation even begins, you can rest easy knowing that Nu Smile Aligners will always cost $1,750 for the entire treatment.

Crafting Your Series of Personalized Aligners

Once a treatment plan has been made, your aligners will be fabricated. Invisalign aligners are designed and printed outside of the United States, which means patients must wait several weeks between finalizing their treatment plan and getting their first set of aligners. Nu Smile Aligners are crafted right here in New Jersey, saving you a significant amount of time and money!

Wearing Your Aligners & Achieving Results

You’ll need to wear your custom aligners for 20-22 hours every day, taking them out only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The gentle pressure will gradually shift your teeth into position for about two weeks, at which point you’ll move onto the next set of aligners in the series. Every few weeks, you’ll return to your dentist’s office for checkups to ensure your treatment is going to plan.

Just like Invisalign, Nu Smile Aligners can give you a beautifully straightened smile that lasts a lifetime. However, this only holds true if you adhere to the last part of your treatment: wearing your retainer. Your retainer will help keep your teeth in their ideal positions right after you finish your treatment and well into the future as your mouth naturally changes shape. As long as you follow your dentist’s instructions, you can enjoy a healthy and uniform smile for the rest of your life.

Benefits of Invisalign

Where Are Invisalign Aligners Made? Where Are Nu Smile Aligners Made?

The most notable difference between Invisalign and Nu Smile Aligners is their cost. Our aligners cost several thousand dollars less than Invisalign while still providing high quality and effective care. Why is this? It largely has to do with where the aligners are made!

Invisalign aligners are made in Mexico, and the treatment plans are designed in Costa Rica. Meanwhile, our Nu Smile Aligners are designed and printed right here in New Jersey!

Creating the aligners here in New Jersey saves a significant amount of time and money that would otherwise be spent shipping the aligners in from outside the US. We pass those savings on to you so you can enjoy the healthier smile you deserve without breaking the bank!

Is Invisalign or Nu Smile Aligners Right for Me?

Invisalign and Nu Smile Aligners are equally effective at addressing some of the most common orthodontic issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite, underbite, and crossbite
  • Crooked or uneven teeth

Additionally, Nu Smile Aligners and Invisalign are great for busy adults, image-conscious teenagers, and (in some cases) very responsible older children.

Do Invisalign & Nu Smile Aligners Use the Same Technology & Materials?

Yes! Nu Smile Aligners and Invisalign both use the best technology in the dental industry. For Nu Smile Aligners, we take the digital scans, plan out treatment plans, and print out all the aligners right here in our New Jersey office. Each aligner is printed from high-quality biocompatible clear plastic and inspected to make sure they’re flawless. We never cut corners when it comes to quality, so you can expect the same reliable and effective treatment that you would from Invisalign.

Why Is Invisalign So Much More Expensive Than Nu Smile Aligners?

Invisalign is thousands of dollars more expensive than Nu Smile Aligners for two reasons. First, the aligners are made outside of the United States, which means extra money needs to be spent on the shipping and handling required to get them to you. Secondly, the cost of Invisalign varies on how many aligners you need, which can depend on the severity of your orthodontic treatment and if you lose your aligners. With Nu Smile Aligners, we cut both of these cost increases by creating our aligners right here in New Jersey for one flat price with all-inclusive aligners.
