Can I get veneers if I have TMJ? If so, will it be covered by insurance?

Tmd and veneers
Insurance Coverage for veneers unlikely regardless of TMJ disorder.
Neuromuscular Treatment of TMJ disorders can give incredible relief from pain.
The DNA appliance can often orthopedically finish TMJ cases without the discomfort of braces.
Veneers can give you an incredible smile you have dreamed of but don't expect your insurance to cover it. The exception to veneer coverage may be high end executive premium insurance usually available in special packages to highly compensated executives.

Veneers are not likely to be a covered benefit
I would not plan on it, even to the point of saying, "No, not at all." If you pay in full in advance and then work on your insurance, you may get something back.
