What are my Options for Paying for Braces?

June 14th, 2019 by Birmingham Orthodontics

An investment in orthodontic treatment comes with lifelong rewards. However, the cost of treatment can be intimidating. We’re here to eliminate any worries or concerns you may have about paying for braces. During your first visit, we’ll determine what you or your child’s treatment plan would look like including your financial options. Our mission is to create smiles for everyone at an affordable price. We back that up by offering a variety of flexible payment options.

Let’s talk financing.

It’s not always possible to pay the entire cost of orthodontic treatment upfront. That’s why financing braces is one of the best ways to afford them. Our in-house financial plans allow you to pay for treatment at a lower cost over a period of time. Because our mission is to create smiles at lower costs, we’ll never charge interest throughout treatment. During your free consultation, our doctors will lay out the best course of treatment for you or your child. Immediately following that conversation, our team will offer a variety of financial options that best fit your budget. If you’re curious about what exactly happens during that initial visit, we’ve written a post about that here

Some patients may be too young to begin treatment. If your child fits that category, we’ll chat with you about our Youth Savings Program. This allows you to lock in current treatment rates and get a head start on financing your child’s braces at a lower monthly cost – and at no risk to you. Later on, if you choose to forego orthodontic care, we’ll give you a full refund.

Are there special discounts?  

We aim to provide convenience, quality and savings where we can. So, along with a variety of affordable payment plans, we offer multiple patient appreciation discounts that lower the overall cost of treatment. For those who qualify, we’ll extend the following savings options: 

Schedules can get busy regardless of the time of year. Our Same Day Braces program allows your child to get braces immediately following your free consultation – and at a $129 discount. 

Can my insurance cover braces? 

Depending on your carrier, insurance can help cut the cost of braces. Prior to your first visit with us, we suggest checking the status of your orthodontic coverage. If your insurance carrier covers treatment, we’ll file that claim for you. And if not, don’t stress, only about 25% of our patients have treatment covered by insurance. At Birmingham Orthodontics, we focus on determining each of our patient’s unique orthodontic needs and working within their budget to give them the smile they’ve always wanted.
