“Will dental insurance cover teeth whitening?”

Q: “Will dental insurance cover teeth whitening?”

A: Most dental coverage plans cover dental services, such as:

  • Preventative dental health services, such as cleanings
  • General dental care, such as cavity fillings and x-rays
  • Oral surgery services, such as bridges and crowns 

Because teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, it is not usually covered by dental insurance. As a rule, general dental aesthetic services that do not have any health benefits will not be covered by most insurance plans, although there are exceptions. The most likely scenario is that either the treatment will have to be paid out-of-pocket or through a payment program. Contact us to find out what options are available to you.
