Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental team member explaining how dental insurance works

Dental insurance is similar to medical insurance, but there’s one key difference: medical insurance is designed to help you pay for treatments as health problems arise, while dental insurance is aimed at preventing such issues from developing in the first place. For that reason, dental plans tend to provide the highest amount of coverage for preventive services like checkups and cleanings. Being aware of this fact, and taking advantage of it by attending two checkups per year, can help you save thousands of dollars on dental care over the course of your lifetime.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Every dental insurance plan varies slightly in the details, but generally speaking, coverage tends to follow a few basic rules:

  • Preventive care is covered at 80-100%.
  • Minor restorative services, like fillings, are covered at around 70%.
  • Major restorative procedures, such as dental crowns and tooth extractions, qualify for up to 50% coverage.
  • Cosmetic treatments are rarely covered because they’re not considered medically necessary.
  • Some plans provide a fixed amount of coverage for orthodontic treatments, but it might only apply to traditional braces.

Our In-Network Dental Insurance Providers

Visiting a dental office that is in-network with your insurance plan allows you to truly maximize the amount you could save on your care. That being said, patients with out-of-network plans can still save at Bright Smiles Dentistry. In fact, the difference between in-network and out-of-network coverage is often negligible. As long as you have dental insurance, we’ll happily ensure you’re getting all of the discounts you qualify for!
