Are veneers or teeth whitening covered under BUPA or a comparable insurance
Different insurance companies will have different criteria. It is important that you check what treatments are covered with your own insurance company. See: Bupa Dental Cover for Private and NHS Patients: Is It Right for You?
We recommend that you first have your clinical assessment and examination. This will outline your condition 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 of a different nature.
Thereafter, once you have a definitive Treatment Plan, you can go to your insurance company and simply ask if they would cover the proposed treatment.
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. We specialize in helping 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 provide cover for elective cosmetic treatments like veneers or adult orthodontic procedures aimed at simply aligning the teeth to look better.
You will have to look into what types of treatment are and are not covered by your particular insurance company. Usually, insurance is to protect 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 providing the functional and structural support.
