Every plan will have its own unique stipulations that we’ll help you understand once you use your benefits, but most plans still offer coverage in the same way. For example:
Preventive Care – includes exams, cleanings, X-rays, and sometimes fluoride therapy for younger patients. Usually covered at or close to 100 percent.
Minor Restorative Care – typically includes dental fillings and endodontic care. Usually covered between 70 and 80 percent.
Major Restorative Care – often covers dental crowns, bridges and dentures. Covered up to 50 percent by insurance.
Keep in mind that dental implant placement and cosmetic enhancements are not generally covered by dental insurance.
