The cost of invisible braces may seem like a significant investment.
However, when you really break down the numbers, you might find that the daily cost of Zenyum invisible braces may not entail as much sacrifice as you think.
It all boils down to what you’re willing to give up in order to enjoy a similar alternative.
Which brings us to the idea of opportunity cost.
What is opportunity cost?
In economics, your opportunity cost is the loss of the benefit you would have gotten had you chosen to devote resources to your best alternative.
For example, if you spend 2 hours every day watching Netflix when instead you could have exercised for 2 hours, your opportunity cost is the physical and mental health benefits accrued from the exercise.
Similarly, if you put a portion of your savings into investments every month, you give up some spending money every month while incurring an opportunity cost of the happiness you might have from the additional things you could buy.
In return, you expect to be swimming in piles and piles of money when you retire.
So what does Zenyum actually cost you IRL?
Zenyum invisible braces come with two treatment plans: ZenyumClear™ or ZenyumClear™ Plus.
If you are prescribed ZenyumClear, which is ideal for milder cases that take 3–9 months to treat, you will be paying a fixed cost of $2,400 for your entire treatment.
On the other hand, if you have more complex teeth-straightening needs, our dentists might recommend ZenyumClear Plus, which costs between $3,300–$3,900 and takes 8–15 months to complete.
If you haven’t taken our free pre-assessment, you might not be sure which treatment plan you will need. So let’s say you are paying $3,150, the average cost of the two treatment plans, over 9 months.
$3,150 divided over 9 months is only $12 per day (or $84 a week).
In real life, $12 can buy you:
- Eating out for 1 mid-priced meal
- 2 Starbucks Grande frappuccinos
- 1 pint of beer (sorry, beer lovers!)
- 1 Grab ride for the days when you’re too tired to deal with public transport, or when you stay out past midnight
Okay, maybe you don’t always buy coffee or take Grab rides every day.
Fair point. But you know what?
You could easily be spending more than $84/week on:
- That upscale gym membership you’re not even making full use of
- Friday happy hours, clubbing and karaoke sessions
- Shopping every time there’s a sale on Lazada or Shopee
If you’re starting to think some of your weekly expenses are actually not worth it…
Then only one question remains.
Are Zenyum invisible braces worth it?
The question now is whether the benefits of Zenyum invisible braces are worth the cost of giving up your daily lattes and frappuccinos, boozy weekends and overnight clubbing.
Make no mistake, there are some little things you’ll forego when you invest in something like Zenyum invisible braces.
It isn’t just about the money.
There are new lifestyle habits you have to adopt such as regularly cleaning your invisible braces, taking them off before meals and putting them back on and getting used to the discomfort of a new set of aligners.
Reasons you should get Zenyum invisible braces
Crooked and crowded teeth are much more difficult to clean and the buildup of bacteria can lead to a host of other oral problems such as plaque, inflamed gums, and tooth cavities.
You might also be wearing down your teeth if you have an overbite because your bottom teeth keep hitting the back of your top teeth all the time.
Misaligned jaws also make it hard for you to chew food properly.
Ultimately, the top reason to get invisible braces is a boost in confidence.
Tight-lipped smiles aren’t a sign of confidence.
Wide, genuine smiles where you show your teeth and laugh out loud exude charisma and confidence which creates a positive impression in the workplace and with your significant other.
Investing in Zenyum invisible braces paves the way to a lifetime of confidence, wider smiles and healthier teeth.
