Insurance may sometimes cover the total cost of Cosmetic dentistry to 50% of the total cost. However, for such cases, there principally has to be an accepted medical advantage for the procedure in addition to the aesthetic advantage. The good news is that many cosmetic dentistry procedures do support the overall and long term health of the teeth.
Whitening and gum contouring is almost never covered, but it is possible to get the insurance to cover veneers, bonding, and crowns in many circumstances. A dental exam can help establish that these procedures are necessary to help you maintain strong and healthy teeth.
The cost of Cosmetic dentistry varies widely. A professional in-office teeth whitening can cost approximately $450 to $650, whereas over-the-counter whiteners can fall in the range of $4 to $100. A visit and consultation at our clinic can help you find out the exact cost of the procedure recommended for you.
