Braces Cost

At Fairfax Family Dental Care, we provide Fairfax, VA, with high-quality braces while maintaining a focus on affordability.

Several factors impact the cost of braces, including the skill of your orthodontist and the specifics of your individual braces treatment. 

We offer traditional metal braces at a very competitive price range of $2,450 to $7,450. 

Braces Now Prevent Larger Costs Later

Crooked, crowded, and misaligned teeth can cause severe harm to your oral health. When left untreated, these relatively straightforward issues may spiral into serious health conditions. These include tooth decay, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

These issues can harm your day-to-day quality of life, and fixing them can be significantly more costly than simple metal braces. Call or write to us today to request a free consultation at our Fairfax office. Your teeth and wallet will thank you.

What Exactly Impacts Braces Cost?

All of our orthodontic treatments are personalized to patient needs. This means that the cost of our braces is a spectrum, not a set price. The following factors will impact your cost:

Length of Wear

A major determination our orthodontists make is how long you or your child will need to wear braces. A typical time range is between one and three years. Patients whose teeth require longer treatment can expect to pay a higher price than those needing a single year of orthodontic appointments.

Orthodontic Details

Our orthodontics specialists are capable of performing any dental procedure. Patients who suffer from extreme tooth misalignment may require a more intensive braces treatment plan. We pride ourselves on providing complex interventions if needed, while never recommending unnecessary orthodontic treatments.

Preparatory Care

In some cases, patients require certain treatments to lay the groundwork for effective orthodontic care. These are often simple but necessary, such as deep cleanings and fillings. We use the world's most sophisticated X-ray machine, the Vatech i3d, to ensure accurate evaluations of all patients' teeth. 

Our Treatment Costs Are Comprehensive


When you pay for treatment with us, you receive more than just the braces. Our costs include a thorough review of your dental records, all orthodontics appointments associated with your braces, and the retainers that are a necessary finishing touch to all braces treatments. 

Orthodontics Affordability

Dental Insurance

We accept most dental insurance plans and are happy to take the stress of navigating insurance questions off of your plate by coordinating with your insurer for you. Many may not know that they can possibly receive their full insurance benefit even if we happen to be listed as an out-of-network provider.

Payment Plans

To help patients with out-of-pocket costs we made the decision to accept CareCredit®. CareCredit is a third-party financing company that provides a pathway for our patients to pay for their treatment in convenient no- or low-interest monthly installments. 

We Also Offer Invisalign

Some patients avoid traditional braces because they do not want front-facing metal wires to broadcast their treatment to everyone they see. Lingual braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners are more discreet corrective options.

For patients seeking a subtler treatment option, we offer Invisalign®. Our dentists often recommend Invisalign because of the effectiveness of its aligners and the fact that Invisalign can have a lower price point than other subtler straightening options.
