Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental insurance is different than other forms of insurance (i.e., medical). Focused on prevention and reducing the chances of more serious and extensive restorative care, it rewards patients who commit to six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings and undergo other forms of preventive care by agreeing to cover most or all of the cost (80-100%). But even when problems arise, most dental insurance companies will pay 50-80% of the total cost.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Preventive and restorative dentistry are the two main categories of care that dental insurance companies include in their list of available benefits. You are unlikely to find cosmetic dental treatments as part of any plan simply because most companies view these services as luxury procedures.

The normal breakdown of benefits might look something like the following:

  • 100% preventive care
  • 80% minor restorative care
  • 50% major restorative care
