Keep Your Smile Bright and Healthy, Despite the Wounded Economy Offers Several Plans with Discounts on Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Updated: 5/18/2009 1:57:31 PM

Smiles are often referred to as the ‘windows to the soul.’ That said, most people do their best to maintain a clean, unbroken window.

As cosmetic procedures, both dental and otherwise, have become less exclusive and more commonplace, dentists have seen an influx of patients seeking cosmetic dental procedures. Demand for one of the most common procedures, teeth whitening, has increased by 300 percent in the last five years, according to the American Dental Association.
Further, a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry reported that one third of all cosmetic dental practices claim more than 2,000 patients who spend an average of $400 per visit.
Now, in an economy where many are worried about just meeting their mortgage payment, the crowd of patients willing to pay $400 per visit for cosmetic dental procedures has thinned.
But, does a wounded economy have to result in dirty, duct-taped windows? Do job cuts and reduced employer-paid benefits automatically push cosmetic procedures to the back burner?

Many Members don’t think so. Rather than put the cosmetic procedures they want on hold, some Members are using their discount dental plans to make these procedures more affordable.
In addition to offering discounts of 10% to 60% on most dental procedures, several of’s discount dental plans offer discounts on specialty procedures such as teeth whitening, dental implants or veneers.
The following discount dental plans are offered to both individuals and families nationwide, and offer discounts on several cosmetic procedures*:
