Only teens and pre-teens opt for orthodontic treatment? Not anymore! With more than 220,000 children’s and adults in England, Scotland and Wales starting orthodontic treatment in 2017, it is clear more and more adults are getting their smiles fixed, too.
Increasing number of adults getting braces and choosing to straighten their smiles means finding the best cost possible for braces, clear braces, or invisible aligners (where StraightMyTeeth already wins thanks to its most affordable pricing.)
One faces lots of questions when it comes to choosing the best option to straighten their teeth:

  1. How much do braces cost?
  2. How much do clear braces cost?
  3. What types of braces are available to me?
  4. What’s the difference between Invisible Aligners vs. braces costs?
  5. Which is better, clear aligners or braces?

As per this Electric Teeth article, expected costs for the various options to correct your teeth are as follows:

  1. Traditional Metal Braces – £1500-3000.
  2. Other Clear Aligners – £1500-5500.
  3. Lingual – £2000-10,000.

These number vary as per the extent of the treatment required, and orthodontists’ variable fees which forms the major portion of the treatment cost.
It states that with any private treatment you will have to pay the full price for the treatment. While few offer payment plans and financing options so that you can pay for the treatment in smaller and more manageable amounts, like Straight My Teeth’s Affordable Monthly Installment Plan
At Straight My Teeth, the whole process can cost as low as just £999.00 and even lower if you avail our discount. Find the discount coupons here.
Our approach is rather simple; Cut down on the avoidable costs to deliver straight teeth at affordable prices. We send over our Dream Smile Kit (£89) which comes with complete, easy to follow instructions that you can use to take dental impression on our your own (everything you need to do it yourself is in the box) without having to visit an Orthodontist’s office. Thus a little DIY saves you the visit fees.
Sidenote: 100% money back of the impression kit if later our orthodontists determines that you are not a right fit for Straight My Teeth aligners.
Upon receiving your impressions our orthodontists create your treatment plan and provide you with a preview of your future smile (Check out a sample preview). You can then go ahead order the Aligners (£1499) that are custom made to fit your teeth and mold them over time.
We strive to deliver your dream smile at most affordable price possible and make it a hassle free experience for you, no wonder Straight My Teeth Aligners are the people’s choice when it comes to creating that perfect smile.


  1. Do your plans include retainers post treatment? And how much would it be for me to get retainers every now and then after the treatment? Thanks.

    1. Lingual braces may be more expensive than other types of braces. They can cause considerable discomfort, especially at first. They can give you a temporary lisp. They may take longer than conventional braces.

  2. Gosh that’s expensive. Luckily I never had to wear them. But my son needs to get his teeth straightened. Do you guys offer this for teens?

    1. Hello Davis,
      We have only 1 smile studio located at Ashford, but soon we will open the studio at Bristol.

  3. I tried clear aligners after having braces as a teen, the low cost that I have to pay myself now is the biggest advantage in my opinion.

    1. Clear Aligner is the best option to use after braces. When using aligners, your teeth are gradually shifted into position as you progress through a series of different clear, plastic trays. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be used for both mild and more severe cases.

    1. Many dental insurance plans cover Aligner treatment the same way they cover braces. Your insurance may pay for a certain percentage of your Aligner treatment, or it may pay for a certain amount. Often there is a lifetime cap on the amount insurance will pay for orthodontic treatment.

    1. Our aligners are the world’s clearest aligners; prices are far more affordable than others. Our aligners are handcrafted, and they are trimmed to the gum line. They are a snug fit and are more comfortable to wear.

      Our aligners are made by an internationally patented unique process, which involves advanced technology supported by customized software and mechanical systems. The material which we use to make aligners is FDA approved and is produced by RaintreeEssix
