What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is basically clear braces which is perfect for patients who want to straighten their teeth while being discrete instead of using traditional wire metal braces to straighten someone’s teeth. Invisalign Sydney uses clear plastic aligners to move and shift the teeth into the desirable position. The clear aligners are made out of thermoplastic material that is uniquely developed for the brand Invisalign. It is strong, effective, comfortable and virtually invisible making it an ideal candidate for all ages.
How much is Invisalign in Sydney?
The average Invisalign cost in Sydney ranges from $7,000 to $9,000 with minor cases starting at $4,500.

The Break Down of Invisalign Payments For Each Appointment
At Parramatta Dentistry we want to be as transparent as possible, so we have listed down the cost involved for each appointment.
- First Appointment: Consultation appointment $65
The consultation appointment will cost $65 and if you have private health insurance you may be entitled to get some rebate back. This appointment will determine if your case is suitable for Invisalign braces and which package is available for you. The dentist will print out the treatment plan that will include the work up fee ($500), Invisalign package cost ($3,700-$7,190) and the retainer price ($300).
- Second Appointment: Work Up $500
At this appointment the dentist will gather all your dental information for your Invisalign treatment. This will include x-rays, mock up and impression of your teeth. This work up fee of $500 is non-refundable if the patient decided not to proceed with the treatment. Once again if you have private health insurance you may be able to receive some rebate back. So please bring your private health insurance card with you on the day.
- Third Appointment: Review Clincheck $3,000
The Clincheck appointment is to review the result of your Invisalign treatment on a 3D display program. This will show you the progressive outcome throughout the whole treatment. If the patient is happy with the result and would like to proceed a $3,000 deposit is to be taken at this appointment. Please bring your private health insurance card with you if you have orthodontic extra with them to claim the allocated amount off the private health insurance. If however the patient does not wish to proceed with the treatment this appointment will be free.
- Fourth and Ongoing Appointments: Instalments $500
The fourth and ongoing appointments are usually between 4 to 6 weeks apart where the dentist will issue you more trays. During this appointment the dentist will also check on the progress of the Invisalign treatment making sure it is on track. If there are any teeth that are straggling behind, refinement trays are able to be fabricated to keep the treatment on course. At each of these appointments a $500 payment is required until your treatment is paid off.
- Last Appointment: Retainers ($300)
After your Invisalign treatment is complete, we strongly recommend you to get retainers to keep your teeth in place. Retainer is to be worn at night while you sleep and helps prevent your teeth shifting. The price for our retainer is $300 for a set of 3 and this is the cost price from the Invisalign Parramatta supplier with no additional fee on top.
