Insurance: Elective Treatment

Inspection of oral cavity

Some services are typically not covered by your insurance company. These may include: cosmetic dentistry, implant crowns, bite modifications, or other services. Although the doctor and patient may agree that these services are important and would greatly enhance your quality of life, your plan may not pay for them if they are not included in their list of services provided.

Although dental insurance can be valuable to reduce out of pocket dental care costs, keep in mind that the dental insurance company is not primarily concerned with paying for your optimal dental care. Dental insurance is meant to provide coverage for a limited number of basic services defined in a contract at the lowest possible cost.
