How Much Will My Insurance Cover?

Dental insurance can be a valuable resource in managing the costs of regular dental visits, although it's important to recognize that no insurance plan provides full coverage for all procedures. Insurance companies commonly categorize dental procedures into three coverage groups.

  • Preventative care: This category typically includes routine cleanings, x-rays, and sealants. Many dental insurance plans offer comprehensive coverage for preventative care services.
  • Basic care: Remedial procedures such as extractions, fillings, root canals, and gum disease treatments fall into this category. Insurance providers usually cover approximately 70-80% of the cost for basic care services.
  • Major care: Procedures like bridges, inlays, and dentures are considered major care. Patients typically have a higher out-of-pocket expense for these services compared to preventative or basic care.

By understanding the coverage categories and the extent of insurance coverage for each, individuals can better anticipate the financial aspects associated with their dental care.


Dental Insurance Deductibles and Maximums

Dental insurance plans typically have deductibles and maximums. The deductible represents the minimum payment required before the insurance provider starts covering services. On the other hand, the yearly coverage maximum indicates the total sum that your provider will pay for your dental care.

Patients who have utilized all their dental coverage with their insurance provider can still utilize Care Credit to finance their care. Your new plan will step in to cover expenses beyond what your insurance has already paid for.

Types of Cosmetic Dental Services

Dental insurance often does not cover cosmetic procedures, making these services unaffordable for many patients. Fortunately, our financing plans mean it is easy to get the treatment you need to improve your smile. Your oral health does not have to break the bank. Some of our popular cosmetic dentistry options include:
