Is Invisalign Covered By Insurance? Am I a Candidate?


Invisalign is a popular choice with our patients as an alternative to braces. Invisalign uses seethrough plastic trays, that you wear for a specified period of time, to adjust the way your teeth look and feel. Invisalign is effective in fixing everything from gaps to overlaps, and even overbites and more.

Having crooked or misaligned teeth can be an emotional and exhausting journey for many patients. They smile less frequently, are often less confident, and don’t like showing off their teeth. It can truly affect overall self-image and how the world gets to see them. That’s why we recommend Invisalign clear braces to our patients, especially those who struggle with their smiles.

Whether Invisalign is covered by insurance depends on your own dental plan. At our San Mateo dental office, we’re here to help — and we’ll be more than happy to review your insurance coverage with you to determine whether you’re eligible.

Depending on the severity and length of treatment, Invisalign expenses can vary. Invisalign does have payment plans in place, though, and your insurance plan may be able to help. It’s our goal to help you find the most affordable option possible.

Dr. Michael Wong, the best cosmetic dentist in San Mateo, will determine whether Invisalign is the best option for you. He will examine your teeth, address any issues, and listen to your concerns about your confidence and happiness in regards to fixing those issues. Then, he will be able to get you started with Invisalign if he feels this is the best option for you.
