Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to dental insurance is that they use it just like their health insurance, in that they wait for a problem to pop up, and then they use their plan to cover the treatment. Dental insurance is designed more around prevention, making routine services like checkups and cleanings more affordable so patients can be proactive with their care. By taking a prevention-first approach, dental problems can be largely avoided or greatly minimized. No matter your provider or plan, the smartest thing you can do is use your coverage mostly for preventive services!
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Expanding on what we just talked about in the section above, your dental insurance coverage probably looks very similar to this:
- Preventive services are covered 80-100% (checkups, cleanings, X-rays, dental sealants, fluoride treatments)
- Basic restorative services are covered 50-70% (bonding, fillings)
- Advanced restorative services are covered 50% (crowns, bridges, dentures, extractions, root canal therapy)
- Cosmetic services are NOT covered because they are elective procedures (whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding)
Just by getting your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year, you’ll be taking great care of both your smile and your wallet, and you’ll also dramatically lower your chances of needing the services that receive less coverage.
