    Hi

    The cost of braces depends mainly on the type of materials used for straightening the crooked teeth, the duration of treatment and the age of the person.

    The cost may vary from as little as Rupees Five Thousand to almost Rupees Forty- Sixty Thousand or more for tooth colored braces.

    For example, the average cost could be Rupees Eighteen Thousand to Rupees Twenty Four Thousand, for Fixed Metal Braces for a duration of Twelve to Eighteen Months of Treatment Time for correcting mild to moderate crooked teeth in a teenager or young adult.

    What appears as slightly crooked teeth to you, may in fact be a lot more difficult to treat technically; since the orthodontist may need to look into your bite correction as well. 

    Braces are a part of the process of orthodontic treatment that align the teeth to improve the smile.

    The confidence from an attractive smile is certainly well worth the effort, time and money spent for the transformation. 

    You could also discuss with your dentist about the alternate and economical treatment options that give faster results if cost or duration are major concerns.
