If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, you’ve probably wondered how much they cost and whether they are covered by your dental insurance. The answer is that porcelain veneers are typically not covered by dental insurance, although we will be happy to call your insurance provider and double check for you.Young couple with attractive smiles

We know that many people are concerned about the cost of porcelain veneers, so we do offer dental financing plans through CareCredit if your insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic dentistry.

If you would like to learn more about porcelain veneers and financing options, please call Dr. Jorge Paez today at 702-737-3553 to schedule your free consultation. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Financing for Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants. However, depending on the reason for your procedure, you may be able to get partial coverage. We will work with your insurance in order to make sure you get the full value out of your insurance plan.

If you plan to have both restorative and cosmetic dental procedures done at the same time, your insurance will most likely cover at least part of your restorative procedure. After finalizing a comprehensive dental plan, we will work out how much your insurance is likely to cover and help you apply for financing for any costs not covered.

CareCredit offers many benefits if you need dental financing, including:

  • Zero or low APR introductory plans
  • Multiple payback schedules to fit your budget
  • Choose the plan that works best with your lifestyle and budget
  • Allows you to get all of the dental work you need done at once, instead of parceling it out over months or even years

Why Aren’t Cosmetic Procedures Covered by Insurance?

Insurance companies typically only cover necessary procedures, and they will only cover the absolute minimum necessary. Cosmetic procedures are considered elective, since they don’t typically impact the way your teeth actually function.

Even non-cosmetic dental procedures can fall victim to insurance companies’ tendencies to only cover the bare minimum. Although dental implants have long been considered superior to bridges or dentures and have proven benefits for patients’ jaw health, they are considered cosmetic and are not usually covered. Insurance companies may also only cover metal crowns instead of natural-looking porcelain crowns, or metal fillings instead of tooth-colored fillings.

We will always do our best to work with your insurance, but we are also passionate about making sure our patients get the absolute best dental care. We want you to have a healthy smile, but we also want you to have a beautiful smile that you aren’t embarrassed about. A person’s smile can impact their self-confidence as well as their ability to make a great first impression. We want to help you obtain a smile you are proud of.
