Can Insurance Cover My Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure?

Male Model in Turquoise Sweater Smiling In Front of WindowWhen Sierra Madre patients visit Dr. Q for cosmetic dentistry procedures, one of the questions they most often asked is, “Will my insurance cover my procedure?” This is a completely understandable question. After all, if you have insurance, you’ll want to use it whenever possible. To help shed some light on this question, and help you understand more about insurance and cosmetic dentistry, we’re taking time now to give you a more thorough answer.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Insurance

To begin, it’s important to point out that most cosmetic dentistry procedures are not covered by insurance. However, there are instances in which your procedure may qualify for coverage. Some cosmetic procedures may be considered under your insurance if they provide functional improvements as well. For example, Invisalign and dental crowns may be covered under your insurance policy, depending on your plan and the primary reason for your treatment. Additionally, if you need cosmetic dentistry to correct the damage done from an accident you’ve endured, your insurance may cover your procedure.

For Sierra Madre patients who need to use insurance, Dr. Q Dental accepts all PPO insurance plans. Dr. Q’s team will work with your insurance carrier and provide you with an estimate of what you will be responsible for.

Other Payment Options for Cosmetic Dentistry

Even if your insurance will not cover your cosmetic dentistry procedure, Dr. Q offers additional payment options. Dr. Q Dental accepts cash, check, all major credit cards, and offers financing plans through CareCredit. Financing makes many cosmetic dentistry treatment options a reality for men and women all over Sierra Madre. Don’t let fear about the cost of your needed treatment keep you from visiting Dr. Q. Your health and well-being are her primary concerns, and she will work with you to give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of.

Don’t Let Insurance Dictate Your Care

Even though insurance is an important piece of making a determination of care, the most important thing you should consider when choosing a dentist or treatment is whether or not they can provide the quality of care you deserve. Even if you can get a recommendation for a dentist from your insurance, the truth is they can’t determine how well that dentist will care for you.

Dr. Q puts her patients first—to her, you’re more than just a number. She works diligently to get to know each and every one—including your family. During your consultation, she will take the time to understand what your problem is and develop a treatment plan that will solve that problem in the best possible way.
