Preventive and Diagnostic Dental Care Insurance

dental insuranceThere are very few dental plans that do not cover the basics.  The basics are generally viewed as costs in preventing serious dental issues.  That would include at least one checkup per year and cleaning but may also include other services such as fluoride treatments and gum and tooth disease prevention.

This type of coverage is what is most often used by those holding a dental care insurance policy.  Every dental insurance company will have a different outlook on what is considered basic dentistry or prevention.  Some may include extractions, fillings or fixing a chipped tooth under their basic dentistry policy.

There are no known dental insurance companies that include teeth whitening services as part of preventive dentistry and many do not cover this at all.  This out of pocket expense can be discussed with the administration staff at your dentist and possible payment arrangements can be made.
