What is dental insurance, and how does it work?
Dental insurance is a type of insurance that helps cover the cost of preventive dental care. There are various types of dental insurance, but most plans will cover a portion of the cost of routine dental care, such as exams and cleanings. Some plans may also offer coverage for more extensive procedures, such as fillings, crowns, and root canals.
Most dental insurance plans have an annual maximum benefit, which is the amount that the plan will pay out in a year. Therefore, if you need extensive dental work like dental implants, you may need to pay for some of it yourself. However, your dental insurance plan usually covers preventive services and can help reduce overall dental care costs.
It is important to note that dental and health insurance are not the same, so you should check with your employer or provider to ensure you have health coverage for both.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Insurance Coverage
Your dental plan should cover some of the costs of routine dental care, such as exams and cleanings. It will also cover medically needed procedures but less often cover cosmetic procedures like veneers or teeth whitening.
The answer to this question will vary based on each dental insurance company and the different dental plans. If you have questions about your coverage, contact your insurance company to get details about your dental benefits plan.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are usually not covered by dental plans if they are not deemed medically necessary. Major services like a complete smile makeover can be costly if not covered by insurance, so you should explore other financing options to pay for procedures that aren't medically necessary.
Since there is usually an annual maximum benefit, your insurance plan may not cover 100% of your dental services, especially if you need extensive treatment. If you need additional help covering out-of-pocket costs, you may qualify for financing options like CareCredit. Complete details on other financing options can be discussed at your consultation appointment.
