Let’s start with restorative dental treatments, which are almost always covered under your dental insurance. Restorations include things like fillings and crowns. It can also include dental implant therapy, depending on the specifics of your plan.

Restorations can be made in a manner where they are aesthetically pleasing, thus making up a crucial part of your smile makeover.

For example, white (composite) fillings and porcelain dental crowns protect and restore your teeth. But they’re also made using cosmetically pleasing materials that enhance the appearance of your tooth during the process. Regardless, they’re an essential procedure used to achieve a better level of oral health.

When your dentist uses white restorations due to physical damage to your teeth, you have a better chance of them being covered by your dental insurance.
