While no two dental insurance plans are exactly alike, the majority tend to follow this same basic framework:
Checkups, cleanings, X-rays, and other preventive services are covered 80-100%.
Fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and other restorative services are covered 50-70%.
Veneers, whitening, and other cosmetic services are NOT covered because they are elective.
Just by keeping up with your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year, you’ll not only save as much as possible with your insurance, but you’ll also lower your risk of developing advanced problems that require more expensive treatments.
