Are Clear Aligners Cheaper Than Braces?

Teeth aligners are also known as invisible aligners, clear aligners, or both. Clear aligners are a cheap and innovative way to straighten your teeth. What’s more? Their popularity is increasing by the day. You see, for many years, people have used metal braces to perfect their smiles globally. 

Clear aligners are usually produced from polyurethane substances. They are so clear and transparent that an onlooker won’t know unless he or she comes close. Clear aligners are replaced every 2-3 weeks. 

What you need to know before purchasing cheap clear aligners

First, you should know what clear aligners are, and how they work. Most brands work similarly but have some variations. Another important thing to know is that not everyone may be eligible for aligners. You can take our Free Smile Assessment to find out if you’re a candidate. 

Invisible aligners are designed to move your teeth gradually from their position in the same way braces do. The difference is that you don’t have to visit the dentist for adjustments. All you have to do is discard the old one, and affix the next set. Each clear aligner has a slightly different form to gradually straighten your teeth. Teeth straightening with clear aligners will typically last between 4-6 months. The duration, however, depends on your situation. 

The invisibility of clear aligners makes it unique compared to regular braces. It doesn’t have nodes or metal wires that mount to your teeth. The invisibility of clear aligners has contributed immensely to their popularity. But then, not all brands have the same level of invisibility. Some brands are lighter and less visible than others. Regardless, you’ll have a clear smile when you put them on.

To get a cheap clear aligner, you’ll first need to order an impression kit.. When you send us your impression kit, our dentists will do a review and determine your eligibility for clear aligners. If you are eligible, you can place an order for your aligner. Usually, clear aligners are custom-made and will be shipped to your door. At Beam we take great care when molding your clear aligners to ensure an optimal fit for maximum comfort throughout your treatment. Clear aligners must be used according to instructions. They should also be used consistently until your schedule is completed. If you fail to, then they won’t work as they should.

How do clear aligners feel?

The last thing you should note about clear aligners is their feel. Aligners should be worn at least 22 hours daily. If you don’t wear it for up to 22 hours, you may not get the desired results. A new set of aligners may feel somewhat tight initially although compared to braces are a much more comfortable alternative. Also, you can take clear aligners out before brushing your teeth, and when you want to eat or drink. 

Overall Beam clear aligners are cheaper than braces. Not only that although they are also more comfortable and have a much shorter average treatment time. Beam believes in high standards.
