We've all at one time or another wanted that toothpaste commercial smile. You know, the one that glows with radiance like the toothpaste commercial models have as they smile at you from your territories screen? However, many of us simply can't afford that million dollar smile. Fortunately, there are some things we can do to financially equip ourselves for that new smile.
The first step you should take in your quest to pay for your veneers is contact your insurance company. Although many insurance companies typically don't cover cosmetic procedures, some may be able to pay a percentage of it. This is nice considering that veneers can go for as much as $1,000 a tooth.
If you've been in some sort of accident that's somehow disfigured your teeth, it might be worth mentioning it to your insurance company. If you convince them enough, they might empty their pockets and fully cover your dental veneers.
If the insurance route doesn't go as planned, it might be in your best interest to carefully shop around for another cosmetic dentist. The rates charged for a veneer procedure can significantly vary from dentist to dentist. If you find a price tag you like, make sure you research the dentist plenty before seating yourself in the dental chair.
Finally, it may be worth asking a friend or family member to lend you some money for your dental veneers. Sit down and work out a plan before lending any amount of money. Get a contract together and have both you and the other party sign it. That way, any future problems can be resolved expediently.
