Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental insurance works a lot like standard health insurance—you pay a monthly premium to gain access to discounted services. However, with dental insurance, the biggest discounts usually apply to preventive procedures like checkups and cleanings. Why? Because this makes it easy for a patient to be proactive and get routine care that stops many dental problems before they start. Plans can also be used to cover things like fillings, crowns, and dentures, but usually at a lower rate.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Dental insurance coverage forms

Your plan will probably be a little different than this, but in most cases, dental insurance coverage tends to look something like this:

  • Preventive treatments covered 100% (checkups, cleanings, X-rays, fluoride)
  • Basic restorative treatments covered 80% (fillings, bonding)
  • Advanced restorative treatments covered 50% (crowns, dentures, extractions)

In most cases, cosmetic treatments like whitening and veneers are NOT covered because they are elective, but things like CareCredit can be used to make paying for them much simpler.
