Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Most dental insurance plans offer coverage for preventive and restorative care. Because cosmetic dental procedures are not considered “medically necessary,” it is unlikely you will receive any kind of financial support from your insurance company. Instead, they make it easy (and possible) to access preventive services as well as restorative care should you need it.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Once our team members are able to review your policy, we will better explain what it covers and how you can get the most out of your plan. Most insurers create a 100-80-50 structure, which involves 100% coverage for preventive care, 80% coverage for minor restorative care, and 50% for major restorative care. This ensures that you get to keep more money in your pocket while undergoing necessary dental work.

If you need orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to review your plan to determine if it offers coverage for this type of dental care. Some do, and some do not, so making sure you and your family are properly covered will help you to save thousands of dollars on braces.
