If you have dental insurance, you already know it’s a wonderful resource for helping you afford the dental treatments that you and your family need to maintain happy and healthy smiles for life. But what about the services you could really benefit from but don’t necessarily need, like cosmetic dentistry? Is that covered by insurance? Let’s take a closer look at what you’re eligible for.
INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR ELECTIVE SERVICES
Most dental insurance plans do not provide coverage for elective cosmetic treatments. If your benefits include orthodontics, however, you are eligible for the same discounts for Invisalign clear braces. Restorative services that improve the aesthetic of your smiles, like metal-free crowns, inlays, and onlays, are also typically covered by a dental insurance plan.
If you want something like porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, though, you will be responsible for paying the entire cost on your own. That is unless you visit a dentist who wants to make cosmetic care more affordable…
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU SAVE
Our team is pleased to offer you a couple of ways to save on transformative cosmetic treatments. Consider joining our Sand Lake Discount Plan. You can sign up and start today!

We also frequently run exciting patient specials on our most popular services. Right now, for example, we are offering our patients a Free Cosmetic Consultation with Dr. Maali. Check back frequently to see if there are new ways you can save on high-quality dental care!
OUR COSMETIC TREATMENTS
Our team is pleased to offer a range of cosmetic treatments, including…
- Lumineers and veneers: These two options in veneers cover up dental imperfections to remake the appearance of chipped, stained, oddly shaped, or otherwise cosmetically imperfect front teeth.
- Teeth whitening: We can erase the stains left by coffee, wine, poor dental hygiene, and other factors with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
- All porcelain crowns and bridges: For damaged or missing teeth in the front of the smile, this option provides a beautiful, natural-looking solution (and they are often covered by dental insurance).
Perhaps best of all, when you visit our office for a cosmetic consultation, you won’t have to guess what your smile will look like after cosmetic dentistry. We offer a digital smile preview so you know just what to expect from your smile makeover!
