I'm looking into Invisalign and saw the forum posts already (invisble type braces on the teeth).



The price is going to be over £2000+, so I'm wondering if there's any private dental insurance I should get to cover part payment?


I looked at the https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/insurance/dental-insurance/ thread, but WPA changed into nhstopup and I don't think I'd be covered?


Just wondering anyone else's experience! Thanks

    You'd be better off looking for cheap finance rather than an insurance that would cover it.
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    I have had invisalign and I had an agreement with the dentist to pay some off at each appointment. I used a 0% 24 month credit card and spread my payments that way.
    having invisalign is life changing.:T

    Surely you can't get insurance to cover a pre-existing problem?

    Otherwise I won't bother insuring my house, I'll just pop out and get some cover the day after it burns down.......
