I am wanting to get veneers to cover a gap beteween my two front teeth, I do wish to have my whole mouth done, just enough to "correct" the gap. I am active duty military and learned today that Tricare absolutely will not cover any costs of "cosmetic dentistry". I do have a consultation with a dentist but am starting to worry that I will not be able to afford his prices and I do not wish to waste his time if this is the case. So I guess my questioin is how pricey are dental veneers?
What is the Cost of Dental Veneers on One's Upper Front Teeth?

Hi there. To answer your question, fees for veneers vary greatly. In New York City the average is $1500~2000 each.
Unfortunately, the gap between your two front teeth is too wide for closing with veneers. But the good news is that you could close them with orthodontics (Braces). And if you were closing the gap because of an issue other than cosmetics, like the gap makes it difficult to eat with your front teeth, or difficult to make some sounds when you talk; Then Tricare or another insurance is more likely to cover.
Hope this helps.
