Do Veneers Get Covered By Insurance- no!
Here are the four requirements for a veneer to be covered by insurance:
– The procedure must be medically necessary (as opposed to cosmetic) and the treatment must be included on the general dentistry list.
– The procedure must be covered in the treatment plan for the patient.
– The patient needs to make an appointment with a general dentist and get a general exam.
– The patient will be given a provisional license number at the oral surgery consultation.
So basically, a general dentist can perform a veneer and if he deems it medically necessary, the insurance will pay for it.
How much do veneers cost?
Veneers are usually priced according to the benefit given in the policy. Some plans may give you a choice of veneers (after the consultation).
Many policies will also have extra coverage for teeth straightening. Therefore, the most affordable prices for veneers are the ones that come with the extra teeth straightening coverage. This means you get the main benefit for a relatively small extra payment.
A number of insurers will also cover regular teeth straightening for free. This is usually for a limited period of time but you are not given a choice.
Is composite veneers the only option?
No, there are also composite implants. Most veneers look good when the tooth above is held in by composite, but you cannot extend the tooth to cover the surface.
What are the benefits of veneers?
The main advantage of veneers is that the jawline is a crucial feature of a person’s face and veneers help to create a more attractive jawline. By upgrading your existing teeth, veneers can also help make a person look younger, lighter, whiter and in many cases, a lot more attractive.
What are the disadvantages?
They are a very expensive treatment and it can be very expensive for a person who is on a low income to afford the treatment.
The insurance companies will often not cover veneers because they will consider it cosmetic and not a dental procedure. The reason behind this is that these “tooth extensions” are permanent and thus the surgery needs to be considered a “major dental” surgery.
How long does it take to get veneers?
It can be a long process to get veneers. You should not expect to have your veneers in your mouth within the first consultation. However, it can sometimes take a day or two to get your veneers, and in some cases it takes a few months.
Are there certain things to consider when getting veneers?
Here are some things to consider before getting veneers.
Are you interested in getting porcelain veneers, composite veneers, or whitening veneers?
This will depend on your taste. If you are not that comfortable with something completely different, porcelain veneers are the most simple way to change your smile.
The benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are on the natural tooth, so your teeth will look like they belong there, which you can’t do with a composite or white veneer.
Other ways of getting your teeth fixed
Porcelain veneers or other composite veneers are usually just one of the many ways you can get your teeth fixed. Other options include:
Shaping treatment: shaping is when a specialist shapes the teeth to suit your needs. An electric knife is used to remove or shape the affected portion of your teeth.
Sculpting treatment: as its name suggests, sculpting treatment involves working with the roots of your teeth, either shaping the outer layers or the inside of your teeth. It is a very gentle treatment, usually carried out under anaesthetic and can be effective for a very wide variety of problems.
Caps, Crowns, & Root Canals
Yes, you may also be able to receive treatment for your missing teeth through cosmetic dentistry.
With crowns, when the tooth (or teeth) has been completely worn away.
This article describes how to get veneers on a very tight budget. For many of us in the UK, having a veneer or composite veneer can set us back well over £1000.
But with some careful planning, you can have a veneer done for under £600, and most of these composite veneers (except for those thin beveled edge ones) don’t even require full mouth reconstruction.
