Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
With health insurance, the goal of most policies is to help patients pay for treatments for ongoing problems, like sickness or injury. Dental insurance takes a different approach—most policies are focused on prevention. The idea is to empower patients to be proactive with their care so they can take care of minor issues early and avoid many in the first place. Long-term, this leads to better oral health and lower care costs, which is a big win-win for patients!
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
We can’t tell you exactly what your dental insurance plan covers unless we talk to you, but generally, your benefits probably look very similar to this:
- Checkups, cleanings, X-rays, and other preventive services are covered 80-100%
- Fillings, crowns, bridges, and other restorative services are covered 50-70%
- Whitening, veneers, bonding, and other cosmetic services are NOT covered
By keeping up with your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year, you’ll not only greatly minimize your risk for more advanced dental problems, but you’ll also save significantly every time you visit the dentist.
