What is a “downgrade?”

A downgrade means that your insurance provider is choosing to pay for a material that is less expensive, yet still effective. For example, you may see your insurance provider will often downgrade fillings. This means that they are willing to pay for a material that is still proven effective (amalgam, silver) even though your dentist only offers white, tooth-colored fillings. What this means for you is that you will have to cover the difference in cost.

Does dental insurance work the same as medical insurance?

In short, no. Dental insurance generally covers some, but not all of the cost of dental treatment. Most dental plans have a yearly maximum in place, which means that they will only cover up to a certain amount every year. Any costs incurred beyond that maximum end up being the responsibility of the patient.

I don’t have dental insurance, can I apply for financing at home?

Absolutely! If you feel more comfortable applying for third-party financing in the comfort of your own home, feel free to do so. In fact, applying for financing from home can make the in-office process that much easier. Don’t have time to apply at home? No worries. Our Lincoln Family Dentistry team is more than happy to help!

Have more questions?

Understanding your dental insurance can make a trip to the dentist less anxiety provoking. Afterall, healthcare is expensive, and it’s nice to know what you can expect.
