Dental insurance helps you offset the cost of dental care and keep your smile healthy. Most plans focus on preventive care to catch signs and symptoms of disease early. This can reduce the chance you’ll need more complex treatment later. But if you do, your plan will likely cover a portion of the cost.

Dental insurance usually covers:
  • Routine preventive and diagnostic care such as cleanings and exams
  • Basic procedures like fillings and simple extractions

Dental insurance often covers:
  • Major procedures such as crowns and bridges
  • Select procedures such as orthodontia

Dental insurance may not cover:
  • Cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening
