Are Veneers Covered by Insurance


Typically, veneers are not covered by insurance. I get that question a lot. Insurance is usually in place to help fix things that are broken or damaged. Veneers typically are cosmetic. There is an exception to that when insurance can actually kick into the play is when the tooth previously had a crown or large filling that’s now faulty. Now we can replace it with the modern advantage of all porcelain veneer or something, and it can be part of the components of doing your smile. So lots of times I tell patients, “No, your veneers are not going to be covered as a whole. But there may be one or two teeth that do qualify for insurance coverage. But overall it’s elective care.”
