Dental veneers restore the beauty of discolored, chipped, and misaligned teeth. If you’re looking for a dentist to solve any of these problems, veneers may be right for you. But, does dental insurance cover veneers?
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Since insurance companies think of dental veneers as cosmetic, they don’t usually cover veneers.
Some dental insurance companies will pay 30%–50% of the cost if you demonstrate that there is a structural need.
How much do dental veneers cost without dental insurance?
The cost of dental veneers vary due to factors like:
- Geography (they’re more expensive in large cities than in rural areas).
- The type of material used. Porcelain is more expensive than a composite veneer.
- The skill of the dentist placing the veneer.
How cost effective are dental veneers?
The success of dental veneers is very high. They last an average of ten to twenty years, or more. Porcelain veneers don’t stain, so clean and whiten your teeth beforehand.
You’ll care for your veneers the exact same way as your natural teeth. Although they’re strong, it’s best to resist the urge to bite open pistachio nuts, crunch on hard candy, or chew on ice. If a veneer does crack or become loose, your dentist can replace it.
The procedure to place dental veneers is simple and usually requires only two or three office visits to complete.
How to get the best dental veneers
Dental veneers are about 0.5 mm thin, about as thin as a rose petal. A small amount of the surface of the tooth is removed to create a rough surface that will bond to the veneer. Because of this process, veneers are not a reversible procedure.
