Claiming Invisalign on Peoplecare extras

What is Invisalign?

Have you always wanted the braces result but don’t want to look like a teenager? That’s the key reason many adults and teenagers use Invisalign.

Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to progressively straighten your teeth. The aligners can be removed for up to two hours a day – giving you more freedom and flexibility, as well as ease of tooth and aligner cleaning.

Unlike getting braces through an orthodontist, you don’t need an appointment every month. With Invisalign, you only need to come in to see one of our friendly dentists every 2 months.

The Invisalign system is a discreet and hygienic orthodontic treatment that uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten teeth.

How much can I claim on Peoplecare extras?

Peoplecare members with Premium Extras or High Extras can claim Invisalign under their orthodontic benefits (a 12-month waiting period applies for orthodontics).

If you’d like to see what results you can expect, providers can take impressions & imaging for you. There’s a fee for these services, which could be included in your total package price if you decide to go ahead with the Invisalign treatment.
