Financing Options and Payment Plans

It's very rare the dental insurance will cover the cost of porcelain veneers treatment since it's considered a cosmetic/elective procedure. For that reason, we are pleased to offer financing options for our various smile makeover treatments.

It's helpful to think of dental financing in terms of credit cards. A trusted third-party lender pays for the total cost of dental treatment upfront. The patient is then responsible for paying back the lender on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply to the total cost of treatment. By having a fixed payment amount and schedule, patients are able to budget accordingly.
