How Does Dental Insurance Work?

Dental insurance and health insurance are very similar in a lot of ways. You pay your provider a premium every month, and in exchange, they pay for all or part of your healthcare services. With dental insurance, the highest amount of coverage usually applies to preventive services like checkups and cleanings. The idea being that by making these treatments easily affordable, a patient can be proactive with their care and largely avoid more serious dental issues (along with the more expensive procedures required to fix them).

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Without going over your plan with you, we can’t tell you exactly what it covers, but we can confidently say that things like checkups, cleanings, X-rays, and fluoride treatments are likely covered 80-100%. Restorative treatments like fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures are probably covered 50-80%, while cosmetic services receive NO coverage because they are elective procedures. These numbers are why we recommend patients mostly use their insurance to pay for preventive visits—it’s the best way to take great care of your teeth and save tremendously whenever you come to see us.
