Dental insurance offers an easy way to help families pay less for their dental care, but whenever someone signs up for a policy, they don’t exactly get a guide on the best ways to use it, right? That’s where the team at Creating Smiles, PC can help! We’ll not only accept your plan but help you maximize it so you can get the care you deserve while saving as much as possible. There are a few basic tips that everyone with dental insurance should know, and you’ll find them below. To learn how we could use your specific plan, be sure to give us a call.

Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental insurance forms

The biggest difference between dental insurance and standard health insurance is that with dental insurance, most plans are focused on helping patients prevent problems. That’s why routine services like checkups and cleanings tend to receive more coverage compared to treatments like fillings and crowns. By using your plan to primarily pay for your preventive visits, you’ll not only be taking full advantage of your benefits, but you’ll also be safeguarding your oral health, meaning you’ll require fewer treatments that have less coverage.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Expanding upon what we mentioned above, with most plans, checkups and cleanings are covered 80-100%, meaning you’ll probably have to pay little to nothing out of pocket. When it comes to restorative treatments like fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures, they are typically covered 50-70%. While this is a sizeable portion, you can see why we place so much emphasis on prevention! For cosmetic services like porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, they usually don’t receive any coverage because they are deemed elective procedures. To make them more affordable, third-party financing is easily available through our dental office.
