Get clear on Invisalign cost: What you can expect to pay for Invisalign in Australia


Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth straightening options — and it’s clear to see why. Thanks to its barely visible, removable aligners, Invisalign offers a super discreet way to straighten your smile with more flexibility than traditional metal braces.

But if you’re thinking about perfecting your pearly whites with Invisalign, there’s likely one big question playing on your mind:

How much does Invisalign cost?

Cost plays a major role in any big decision — and Invisalign is no exception. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on the cost of Invisalign, including how much the different types cost and the factors that can affect the price of Invisalign treatment.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The average cost of Invisalign in Australia ranges between $3,500 and $8,500.

Why does the cost of Invisalign vary?

No two smiles are alike — and neither are Invisalign treatments. The cost of Invisalign will vary depending on a few different factors that are unique to your specific case. These factors include:

The complexity of your case

The cost of your Invisalign treatment will largely be determined by how complex your case is and how much your teeth need to move. If you only need minor corrections, your treatment will typically take less time and will be less expensive. But if your treatment needs to tackle more complex issues like severe overcrowding or bite issues, you’ll be looking at a longer treatment time and higher costs.

Your treatment time

Depending on your case, your Invisalign treatment time could range from a few months to a few years. And along the way, you’ll need to visit your dentist regularly so they can monitor the movement of your teeth. More complex cases will require a longer treatment time and more follow-up appointments. And generally, the more appointments you need, the higher the cost will be for your treatment.

The number of aligners you need

Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you’ll receive new aligner trays every 1-2 weeks to gradually move your teeth. The overall price of your Invisalign treatment will depend on how many sets of aligners you’ll need to perfect and correct your smile.

‍How much your health insurance will cover

If you have private health insurance, you may be able to claim a portion of your Invisalign treatment costs, helping to bring down your out-of-pocket expenses. We’ll explore how this works towards the end of this article.

Does private health insurance cover Invisalign costs?

Your private health fund may cover some of the costs of your Invisalign treatment — but it all depends on the level of coverage you have and your policy inclusions. The easiest way to find out whether you’ll be eligible to claim a rebate is to call your insurer before committing to any orthodontic treatment.

When speaking with your private health fund, be sure to ask these important questions too:

  • Do I have any waiting periods?
    If you’ve only just started your policy, you may be subject to a waiting period of up to 12 months before you can make a claim for Invisalign.
  • What is my orthodontic lifetime limit?
    Most health funds have a per-person lifetime limit on orthodontics, meaning that there is a maximum amount you can claim on this type of treatment for life. And once you’ve used this lifetime limit, you won’t be able to claim any further rebates (even if you change health insurers!)

Can I pay for Invisalign treatment over time?

You certainly can! We offer a range of Invisalign finance options at our Gregory Hills and Moss Vale practices. With our flexible Invisalign payment plans, you can start straightening your smile now and pay for your treatment in easy instalments over time.
