Does insurance cover Invisalign Express?

Some insurers consider clear aligners a cosmetic treatment, even more so when it’s for a minor condition (like those that are usually a good fit for Express). Insurance typically won’t cover the entire cost of Invisalign or Invisalign Express treatment, so you’ll likely still have some out of pocket costs.

How many trays is Invisalign Express?

Typical Invisalign treatments take between 20-30 alignment trays to reach the intended results. With Invisalign Express, patients only require up to 5 trays.

What does Invisalign Express include?

Traditional Invisalign uses a series of 20 to 30 aligners to straighten teeth and correct malocclusions. Invisalign Express, though, is different. Designed for adults and teens with specific crowding, spacing or cosmetic issues, this “express” approach uses 10 aligners or less over a six-month period.

Why is Invisalign Express cheaper?

What is the difference between Invisalign Express and Invisalign Lite?

While Invisalign Lite offers quicker results than Invisalign Complete, Invisalign Express beats them both. With the fastest treatment time of any type of Invisalign, Invisalign Express is a great option for you if you are wanting to correct very minor orthodontic issues.
