Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental insurance forms

Dental insurance companies typically cover preventive and restorative care. Whether it is dental exams and cleanings, dental crowns, root canals, or tooth extractions, these services are covered partially or in full depending on your plan. Cosmetic dentistry is not considered a medical need, so most companies will not provide coverage for veneers, teeth whitening, etc. Also, it is possible to receive coverage for orthodontics, but you must determine if there are exclusions such as an age limit or type of orthodontic treatment.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

We cannot determine the coverage your plan offers until we have a chance to review it, but most insurers tend to follow the same 100-80-50 breakdown:

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

How much your dental insurance company will agree to pay is largely based on whether you’ve met your deductible and how much of your existing annual maximum remains.

Medicaid For Children

Children who require dental treatment can come to our dental office to receive the care they need, even if they are on Medicaid. Our team at Atlas Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Plano is pleased to work with Medicaid to ensure that younger patients (under the age of 18) have access to basic preventive services that are designed to detect oral health issues early on and better maintain healthier smiles for years to come.
