Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Dental insurance is a bit different from traditional medical insurance in that most plans are primarily focused on helping patients prevent dental issues as opposed to treating them. Typically, services like checkups and cleanings will receive more coverage compared to restorative procedures like fillings and crowns. Basically, it’s wise to mainly use your plan to cover your routine preventive visits. This way, you’ll be saving as much as possible while also taking great care of your teeth.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Most dental insurance plans break their coverage down into these four basic categories:
- Preventive Care , which is covered 80-100% (includes checkups, cleanings, X-rays, dental sealants, and fluoride treatments.
- Basic Restorative Care , which is covered 50-70% (includes fillings and composite bonding).
- Advanced Restorative Care , which is covered 50% (includes crowns, bridges, dentures, extractions, and root canal therapy).
- Cosmetic Care is usually NOT covered because the procedures are elective (includes porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, aesthetic-focused repairs)
