Dental Insurance – Louisville, KY

Taking Advantage of Your Benefits

Dental insurance offers one of the best ways to make you and your family’s dental care much more affordable. At Remmers Dental, we understand the importance of maximizing our patients’ benefits so they’re able to take care of both their smiles and their wallets at the same time! To learn more about how dental insurance works and how you can get the most out of your plan with us, read our short and helpful guide below.

The Basics of Dental Insurance

While every plan is a little bit different, most dental insurance policies have a few similarities when it comes to their coverage:

  • Preventive care (such as checkups, cleanings, X-rays, and dental sealants) is usually 100% covered.
  • Restorative procedures, including fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures, are partially covered, ranging from about 50-75%.
  • Some plans have coverage for orthodontics, some do not.
  • Cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are likely NOT covered.

Making the Most of Your Plan

As shown in the list above, most dental insurance plans are primarily aimed at helping people afford preventive care so they can avoid the need for restorative services down the line. That means if you’re looking to get the most out of your policy, you should simply make sure that everyone in your family attends their two recommended checkups and cleanings each year.

Not only will these visits likely be mostly or completely covered by your insurance, but they will also lower the chances that someone will need more extensive (and expensive) procedures later, which could literally save you thousands in the future!

In-network vs. Out-of-network

At Remmers Dental, we are in-network with many major PPO dental insurance plans, including Delta Dental Premier, Aetna PPO, and Guardian to name a few.

However, we are more than happy to accept out-of-network plans! You can still save quite a bit even with an out-of-network practice, and at Remmers Dental, our insurance experts will easily be able to maximize your benefits no matter your provider, meaning you can always come see us and know that you’ll be able to save.
