Are Clear aligners cheap, affordable, and worth it? Or are they a waste of money?

While Clear Aligners can help to straighten out your teeth, they do come with a price tag. Prices do depend on a case by case basis, but you can expect to pay from £1,500 up to £5,500 and sometimes even more than this. The amount it will be is often worked out depending on how crooked your teeth are or if you have an overbite. Both of these will mean that your teeth will take longer for the teeth to move into position and require more trips to the orthodontist. To many people, this cost is simply too much and not deemed to be worth it when there are cheaper alternatives that can achieve a similar outcome.

Are there any disadvantages of getting Clear aligners?

While Clear aligners can straighten out your teeth, they also have a fair amount of disadvantages that come alongside. The first of these is that they can cause damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. Due to the amount of excessive pressure they put on the gums, they can result in swelling and bleeding. If worn for an extended period, they can result in periodontitis and gingivitis. They may also weaken tooth roots too. This pressure can cause a lot of pain for the wearer, with extensive tooth discomfort and pain while they are being worn. As they need to be worn for twenty-two hours a day, this can be a lot of pain over a continued period of time. They also need to be worn for months on end, meaning that it is not a short-lived pain, but one that will continue for sometimes the best part of a year.

Clear aligners are also very inconvenient and require you to visit the dentist often to get them checked and altered. Even when worn at home, you will need to clean them each time you remove them before you place them back in your mouth. This is tedious, and even despite rigorous cleaning can still leave you with bad breath that can make you feel self-conscious.

Clip-on veneers are an alternative to traditional, permanent veneers are can be worn at times that are most convenient to you. They work by having an impression made of your teeth, which are then turned into clip-on veneers. They fit around your teeth like a gumshield so are molded to your mouth. They are designed so when you really want your smile to shine; it can. They are ideal for hiding any chips, cracks, and discoloration and to totally transform your smile.

Clip-on veneers are virtually painless, and as they only need to be worn when you are going out or want a perfect smile, you don’t have to endure something in your mouth all the time. They require no surgical procedure and don’t require anything to be done to your own teeth, preventing any damage from being done. Due to this, you will also need little to no dentist visits at all. You won’t need to take any time out of your schedule to get them sorted, and are much easier to fit into your everyday life. They are a great option to provide you with relief, joy, and sort out the emotional craving for a beautiful smile.

Clip-on veneers are a much cheaper alternative to clear aligners. Their pricing depends on which you opt for, but can be as little as £249 for occasional wear veneers. If you were to choose regular wear clip-on veneers, you are looking at a starting price of £449 for a single arch, which is still a great deal cheaper.
