Looking for alternatives to dental braces and other treatments offered by orthodontists? In recent years, a number of designer treatments for teeth straitening, whitening, and overall smile makeovers have come into the market, but most will probably not be covered by your dental health plan.
Some popular treatments, such as Invisalign, will be covered by any plan that includes orthodontist insurance. Others that are considered to be more cosmetic, such as teeth whitening, will not be covered by just about any insurance plan. You should consult your dentist and your dental plan provider to see if the dental correction you want or need done is covered by your plan.
