How Does Dental Insurance Work?
Dental insurance is different from medical insurance in that it focuses on paying for preventive services rather than treatment for damage that has already happened. For this reason, checkups, cleanings, and X-rays tend to receive the most coverage; meanwhile, restorations such as fillings or crowns are usually only partially paid for. This effectively means that the best way to reduce your personal costs is to make sure you attend at least two routine appointments every year.
What is Covered in a Dental Insurance Plan?
There actually isn’t a universal answer to this question because every plan is different. It’s important to know your benefits and what they’ll cover before committing to any treatment. Our team is also happy to help you with this process! That said, the framework is usually as follows:
- Checkups, cleanings, and other preventive services are 100 percent covered.
- Minor treatments such as fillings receive roughly 80 percent coverage.
- Major treatments such as crown placement receive around 50 percent coverage.
- Your insurance typically won’t pay for whitening or any other purely cosmetic procedure.
