If you're in Phoenix or Glendale and you’re thinking of getting one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, we want you to be aware of the costs associated with your treatments as not all procedures are covered by traditional dental insurance.
Although each patient’s needs are unique, generally speaking:
- Teeth whitening can cost as much as $650.
- Porcelain veneers can run up to $2500 per tooth.
- A single dental implant can be as much as $3000.
You may think your dental insurance plan will cover the procedure you're considering, but you need to be sure before move forward with any treatments
Unlike traditional home or car insurance, which protects against a catastrophe such as a fire or traffic accident, dental insurance is intended to provide a fixed dollar amount each year. Some dental insurance plans may cover cosmetic dentistry when it's necessary for your teeth and mouth to function properly. Others never pay for any treatment that’s strictly considered cosmetic. Many plans will limit the types of cosmetic dentistry in order to control their costs.
