Will my insurance pay for cosmetic procedures?
Generally speaking, no.
Some procedures that might be considered “cosmetic” in nature may be covered because they are also being done to improve the functionality of your teeth, such as porcelain crowns or tooth-colored composite filling. This is true for patients with severely damaged smiles due to an accident or chronic clenching and grinding. Because your dentin may be exposed, it can cause sensitivity and make you more prone to decay. In cases such as this, your insurance may cover a portion of your treatment. Ultimately, it depends on your insurance and your level of coverage.
At Reliant Family Dental, we make it easy for you to get the dental care you need – including cosmetic treatments – because we offer financing through CareCredit and the Quality Dental Plan. We can discuss ways to phase out your treatment over time in order to help you fit it into your budget. We can start with repairing the teeth that most need our attention and move on from there. We also offer super affordable options such as cosmetic dental bonding and teeth whitening.
