This post from Falls Pointe Dental in Raleigh examines dental insurance and cosmetic dentistry.
Will your insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures? Many people assume their dental insurance won’t cover any procedures obtained solely for cosmetic purposes. This is probably true for tooth bleaching or dental bonding. However, many dental insurance plans and supplemental plans cover orthodontia and any treatment required to repair damage from an injury. Medical insurance and worker’s compensation plans may also cover injury treatment.

Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit particulars if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then consider treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the procedure is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.
