The focus is on restoring the teeth to their natural function. Cosmetic procedures – like teeth whitening – are not included under the restorative dentistry category. However, dental veneers can be considered cosmetic or restorative depending on the patient’s needs and circumstances.

Why Is Restorative Dentistry Important?

Restoring the teeth to their normal functionality will not just benefit your oral health but also your entire body. Your mouth is where digestion starts. The better digested your foods, the more nutrients you will get, and the healthier your body will become.

Additionally, addressing certain issues, such as dental decay, can help prevent serious and often painful dental conditions such as:

  • Deep dental decay
  • Infections
  • Tooth loss
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder
  • Chronic headaches/migraines
  • Cracked/chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth

The goal of your Downey dentist is to help you keep as many (if not all) of your teeth for your entire lifetime. As great as modern dentures and implants are – they still don’t surpass the real thing. Restorative dentistry allows us to remove decay and treat traumatic tooth injuries while retaining the health and structure of most of the tooth’s structure.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Restorative Dental Treatment?

Most insurance companies cover a portion of restorative dental treatments. How much they cover depends on:

  • The insurance company
  • Your unique policy
  • Whether the procedure is a “basic” or “major” restorative procedure

Often, insurance companies will cover 50% to 80% of restorative procedures (up to your annual maximum). Typically, “basic” procedures like fillings are covered at 80%, while crowns, bridges, and dentures are considered “major” procedures and covered at 50%.

We’ll work with your insurance company to understand your dental plan, what’s covered, and at what percentage in order to provide you with an as accurate as possible estimate for your dental treatment. From there, we can create a payment plan that works with your budget, including offering information about outside financing options.
