Veneers are coverings that are placed on the front of the teeth. They look like natural teeth and often are used to correct dental problems like stained teeth, gaps, and chips. There are several ways to pay for veneers insurance, discounts, financing and payment plans, credit cards, and dental savings plans. How much do veneers cost? Composite veneers range from $500 to $1,500 and porcelain veneers $1,000 to $2,500. You may need to find a way to finance the cost when it is not covered by dental insurance. Below are methods to pay for veneers.
Vivid Dental has some insurance plans that cover the cost of cosmetic dentistry or veneers. They only cover veneers if you need them because of tooth decay or due to injury. A majority of dental plans do not cover the cost of veneers which are considered cosmetic dentistry. Before looking into financing for veneers, check with your dental insurance company to see whether they cover the cost of veneers. We accept several dental insurance plans, so be sure to check with them first.
When your dental plan does cover veneers, it may only cover part of the cost. That means that you will have to pay for the rest out of pocket. Some insurance companies offer dental savings plans that will help you cover part of the veneers’ cost and save money. Some dental savings plans help you save 30 percent or more on procedures.
Some dental offices offer payment plans and discounts for cosmetic work; these services are through a third-party lender. One popular lender is CreditCare. When customers are approved, they can use it for out-of-pocket dental expenses but only for those approved by this company. You will have to pay off the amount in a certain amount of time to avoid being charged interest on the card. If you have good credit, you might be able to take out a personal loan through your bank. That should have low interest and fixed monthly payments. Other lenders to consider are credit unions and online lenders like the Money Tree. Try to choose the plan that is best for your budget.
Sometimes dental offices offer promotions on veneers and discounts to patients. Check with us to find out if we special offers on veneers and when they run. Several dental offices will work out a payment plan for you when you are a regular customer with their office.
If you have a low-interest credit card and pay your credit card bill with ease every month, this might be a good way to pay for your veneers. Some low-interest credit cards are Citi, Discover, Chase, and Blue Cash. Some patients can save for the veneers and pay it off with their bank debit or credit card.
