Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Many dental insurance plans cover a variety of restorative and preventive services. The amount of coverage that’s available for a given kind of treatment can vary depending on what plan you have. Bear in mind that most dental insurance providers will not pay for cosmetic dentistry since it’s purely elective. That said, you can usually expect them to at least partially cover the cost of necessary treatments like dental crowns and root canal therapy.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

A dental insurance plan that follows the 100-80-50 structure will generally provide 100% coverage for preventive care, 80% coverage for minor restorative care, and 50% coverage for major restorative care. Remember, every plan is different, so the coverage you receive for a given service may vary based on your insurance provider. Generally speaking, the best way to put your insurance plan to good use is to take advantage of your preventive coverage to help pay for checkups and cleanings. This can help you keep your smile in excellent shape, allowing you to avoid bigger dental problems that could potentially require more costly forms of treatment.
