Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
The key thing to understand about dental insurance is that most plans are primarily focused on prevention. This is different than standard health insurance that is designed to help people treat a problem after it has already developed. The goal of dental insurance is to empower patients to be proactive about their care so minor problems can be stopped altogether or treated as early as possible. This, in turn, leads to better oral health and smaller dental bills.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
While your dental insurance coverage is probably different compared to every other plan, it likely follows this same basic framework:
- Preventive services (checkups, cleanings, X-rays) are covered 80-100%
- Basic restorative services (fillings, bonding) are covered 70-80%
- Advanced restorative services (crowns, bridges, dentures) are covered 50%
- Cosmetic and other elective procedures (Lumineers, teeth whitening) are typically NOT covered
Based on these numbers, the best way to maximize your plan is to simply keep up with your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year.
