Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Many patients mistakenly use their dental insurance like their health insurance, in that they wait for a problem to arise and then expect their plan to fully cover the treatment costs. However, dental insurance is more about preventing oral health issues from occurring to begin with. Most dental plans make routine services like checkups more affordable, which helps you avoid tooth decay and other problems that are more expensive to treat. No matter which plan you have, the smartest thing you can do is use your dental insurance primarily for preventive care!

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Prevention is the cornerstone of dental insurance coverage. With that in mind, you can probably expect your plan to look something like this:

  • Preventive services are covered at 80-100% (exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, etc.).
  • Restorative care is covered at 50-80% (fillings, crowns, tooth extractions, etc.).
  • Cosmetic treatments are not covered at all since they are elective (teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, etc.).

Every plan looks a bit different, but most of them follow this basic framework. By attending two dental checkups per year, you can make the most of your coverage while avoiding oral health problems, which benefits your smile and your wallet!
