Dental veneers are a common dental procedure and a great solution for many people looking to improve the appearance of their smile. If you’re considering this procedure, you’re likely wondering, “Are veneers covered under my dental insurance policy?”
The short answer is: not usually. However, we do offer interest-free payment plans through Care Credit so you can get a smile you love without paying for it all upfront.
Let me explain a bit more about what veneers are, who should get them, and payment plan options in our office.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers – also known as porcelain veneers – are thin layers of porcelain, almost like a contact lens, that fit over the front of the teeth to change their appearance.
Sometimes veneers can be applied without removing any tooth structure, but often a thin layer of enamel must be removed, replaced and built back – stronger and more beautiful than ever!
Does your Insurance Cover Veneers?
Insurance coverage of dental veneers depends on the individual policy. Many insurance providers consider dental veneers a cosmetic procedure, and therefore they will not cover the cost. That said, there is wide variation among plans, and some exceptions do exist, such as the use of veneers to restore a decayed or broken tooth.
Some plans also include an “Alternate Benefit Clause” or a “Health Spending Account,” which may be utilized to cover a portion of the cost.
Be sure to contact your dental insurance provider to learn what your benefits entail. We will also be happy to look into your dental plan to see if you qualify for dental veneers coverage. Give us a call at [phone] with your questions and we’ll figure it out together!
