I got mine many years back at Greenlife Dental, it is still priced at $3,500. They have quite a few outlets but I went to the one at Toa Payoh because its near my school haha. Hmm what should you take note...
A location close/convenient for you. You wouldn't want to be missing on your dental appointments, that will lengthen how long you have to wear your braces for.
When I did it, the price is capped at $3,500 for me, do check with them what terms there are. Additional tooth fillings are at an additional price.
If I'm not wrong the first payment is quite expensive, about $1,000? For X-ray and something else, I can't really remember. But the remaining is paid periodically upon every visit to the dentist.
If you've completed your full payment of $3,500 but your teeth is not done haha, you don't have to pay for your subsequent visits unless you need a tooth filling
You will be assigned to a dentist, so it depends on how packed your dentist's schedule will be, but I did not have to wait long for my next appointment, it's usually once a month because your teeth needs time to move haha
You can give them a call to check if all these still applies because its been a few years since. Hope this helps!!
Did mine at i.Dental for about $3,900.
• Payment plan:
I believe it ranges from 3.9k - 4.4k but can pay by instalments so that made it a lot more manageable for me.
Went to their Ubi outlet cuz it's the most convenient for me (I'm an eastie!). There's also an outlet at Northpoint City for if you stay in the north and 2 outlets at Capital Tower if you work in CBD area.
• Pain level:
I ate soft foods for about 2 weeks before getting used to the pain but I've had friends who preferred having good food over comfort hahah.
I think it's important to be mentally prepared for what to expect. Maybe this guide will be helpful. All the best!
I did my braces with a private dental a while back. Your budget can definitely get your braces done in a lot of private clinics. I did mine at S$4,500 that time, but heard that prices have gone down over the years.
However, if you are not in a rush, you can head over to National Dental Centre. I believe it is cheaper, but subjected to a long waiting time, before the procedure.
