In brief: Depends

As clear braces are slightly more costly than metal ones, and as there's about a 10% increase in treatment time, treatment with clear braces is usually about 10% more costly than with metal ones.
See a fully qualified Orthodontic Specialist for an initial examination (usually free) to determine the extent of your malocclusion and the appropriate treatment modalities.

In brief: $500- $1000

Orthodontists charge about $500 - $1,000 higher for using ceramic or clear braces than they would for traditional metal braces.
