How Much Do Braces Cost?

November 24, 2020

Always smile, but smile right.

Your smile is the most beautiful part of your beauty. And it would be best if you did not let a misaligned tooth interfere with your beauty.

Well, one of the popular ways to fix your misaligned tooth or set of teeth is to get braces. But what types? How much would it cost?

Here’s a guide to answering all FAQs about braces.

Types of Braces

Surprisingly, something as simple as braces can be of different types. But there are significant differences between different varieties. Here’s a list of some of the most common types of braces.

Metal Braces

These are the most commonly used braces because they are readily available in the UK. But also because the metal braces are available at a budget-friendly price. They are also highly reliable and most effective.

Though metal braces are a more preferred option, it’s not one that people like. At NaturalSmiles, we have seen people hating on their metal braces more than once. The four-six months-long period with these ugly-looking braces is harsh on them. However, over time, the design of these braces has improved.

Expected Price: Metal Braces can cost you somewhere between £1,500 – £3,000 if you’re getting them fitted at private dental care.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces look similar to metal braces, but they are placed on the inside of your teeth. A great advantage of going for lingual braces is that you won’t have to worry about looking weird when you smile. No one will know you have braces.

Everything has its pros and cons. While the pros are many, lingual braces have some cons as well. It’s hard to clean your teeth properly when lingual braces are covering them. Besides, they can feel uncomfortable for the first month and need fixing more than once.

Expected Price: Lingual Braces can cost you somewhere between £2,000 – £10,000 if you’re getting them fitted at private dental care.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces are similar to Metal Braces, but with a vital difference. Ceramic braces are tooth-colored. They wouldn’t be as visible on your teeth as the metal braces, and if you go for an expensive one, the wire may also be less visible.

Cost of Ceramic Braces

While these braces work as effectively as the metal ones, they require a thorough cleaning at regular intervals. If you don’t clean them nicely, they’ll become discolored and look ugly.

Expected Price: If you are buying the ceramic braces from private dental care, you will have to fork out around £2,000 – £6,000.

Invisalign Braces

Nowadays, Invisalign braces are in. Most people go for these. They are entirely distinct from the common types of braces. These are a set of plastic aligners that are customized as per your teeth. The dentist takes the size of your upper and lower sets of teeth and then gets a custom-made aligner made for you from the laboratory.

The best part about Invisalign braces is that you can remove it, from time to time. And the USP of the Invisalign is that it allows you to eat and drink comfortably.

The down point of the Invisalign braces is that they cost a hefty amount. Besides, you can’t see the results within six months. It will help if you put them on for several months to get the desired effect.

Expected Price: Invisalign Braces usually cost somewhere between £1,500 – £5,550 when you’re getting them from private dental care in the UK.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are another type of braces that is similar to metal braces. They are bonded to your teeth for a particular period, with rubber bands between them. Thanks to the transparent material, these braces are not as visible as the metal ones. cost of Clear BracesThey keep your aesthetics intact while maintaining the conventional way of aligning teeth. However, clear braces are more expensive as compared to metal braces.


Expected Price: Clear braces can cost you somewhere between £3,500 – £4,500 if you’re getting them fitted at a private dental clinic in the UK.

Smart Bracket Braces

As its name suggests, the Smart Bracket Braces smartly adjust to your teeth with the help of the tiny microchip that regulates their operation. They look similar to the metal braces, but they move without causing any friction or damaging your teeth in any manner.

Another plus point of getting the smart bracket braces is, you won’t have to keep them on for longer. Since they cost you extra, they treat you quickly.

Expected Price: If you’re getting Smart Bracket Braces fitted by a private dentist in the UK, you’ll have to pay somewhere between £2,000 – £3,000.

Damon Braces

Damon braces are also called self-ligating braces. They are a subtle version of metal braces. However, unlike the metal braces, the Damon braces are sought after. I’ve seen patients requesting to get Damon braces because they are quite clear in colour and have a unique sliding mechanism.Cost of Damon Braces

The best part is that once you get the Damon braces bonded to your teeth, you won’t have to revisit your dentist for rearrangement or readjustment.

Expected Price: If you’re getting a standard version of the Damon braces that looks similar to metal braces, you’ll have to fork out around £1,700 – £3,000. And if you are getting a clearer version of the Damon braces, then you might have to pay somewhere around £3,500 – £4,500.

The idea is, if you are ready to keep the braces bonded to your teeth for long, you can go for the metal or clear ones. But if you want them to align your teeth perfectly within a few months, then be ready to shell out some fortune on smart bracket braces or Damon braces.
