Does Insurance Pay for Veneers?

Are veneers or teeth whitening covered under BUPA or comparable insurance? Different insurance companies will have different criteria. It is important that you check what treatments are covered by your own insurance company.

Before You Claim

We recommend that you first have your clinical assessment and examination.

One of our expert, professional dental staff Dr Sam Jethwa, will be able to examine your mouth and assess your oral health and state.

Bad oral health conditions and problems that need to be corrected and improved upon before this treatment include tooth decay, gum disease and any infections.

This will outline the diagnosis and work that needs to be done. Veneers may or may not be part of your treatment plan.

We can begin to design your treatment plan at our Hertford clinic.

You may decide after your evaluation that you prefer another treatment option that still meets your cosmetic needs but is different.

Ultrathin Veneers, Durathin Veneers and Lumineers involve no drilling or injections since no tooth is being cut.

Once you have a definitive Treatment Plan, you can go to your insurance company and ask if they would cover the proposed treatment.

Other Ways To Split The Cost

You may be interested to know that we also offer an array of different finance options and plans.

This too could help to make your treatment more affordable. Our treatment coordinators can talk to you about your various options for payment if you wish.

Our team of doctors and hygienists will be able to help you to find affordable finance options so that your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Normally insurance companies only provide reimbursements for teeth that require structural improvements from decay, tooth wear or fracture.

This may be resulting from an accident.

They do not normally cover elective cosmetic treatments like veneers or adult orthodontic procedures aimed at simply aligning the teeth to look better.

Can I Pay For Private Cosmetic Dentistry With Insurance?

Some dental insurance policies may cover the cost of veneers. This will depend on the specific dental insurance you have.

Your insurance company may cover the cost of repairing your teeth with porcelain veneers if you have suffered damage due to an accident.

If your procedures, or parts of your procedure, are medically necessary, then some or all of your treatment may be covered by insurance.

Contact your dental insurance provider to determine if your veneer treatments are covered.

You will have to look into what types of treatment are and are not covered by your insurance company.

Usually, insurance protects you from damage incurred during an accident and not for elective optional work.

However, if any treatment does need to be done and is covered by the insurance company, there should be no reason why it shouldn’t be done in a way that is also cosmetically appealing as well as provides functional and structural support.

At The Perfect Smile, our teeth whitening solutions can brighten your smile by up to ten shades.

Pain-free Treatments

Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.

However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down after the final fitting – this is quite normal and nothing to worry over. It usually only lasts for a few days and very soon after subsidies. More.

The sensitivity is due to the bonding process where an inorganic substance (the veneer) bonded to an organic component (your tooth).

In complex cases, involving a large amount of treatment, you may experience a little uncomfortableness while your teeth settle down.

Treatment Plan
  • At your first appointment, your dentist will look at the general health of your teeth and gums, your bite and understand your goals for your smile; and then see if any fundamental issues need addressing before cosmetic veneer work can begin.
  • We will also discuss the type of veneers that may be suitable and how many veneers you’ll likely need to achieve your desired smile. In some patients, it may be possible to get some veneers placed at an initial phase and then have the possibility of additional shells in the future.


Minimal or No Preparation
  • We will always plan your new smile before any treatment begins. We aim to provide you with the most conservative and preservative dentistry.
  • To prevent excessive tooth preparation, we design your new smile in a way that minimises tooth preparation. We also provide options to have orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment carried out before any cosmetic veneer work starts.
  • Your teeth are already well aligned, so very minimal or hardly any tooth preparation becomes necessary.
  • If you are concerned, we advise that you speak to us in your complimentary consultation. We will be able to provide you with suitable solutions. More.
