Every patient’s Delta Dental insurance policy is different. Your coverage will depend on selections you make and those made by your employer. You will often have the opportunity to pay a higher monthly premium for a policy that offers expanded coverage. In order to provide accurate coverage estimates, we’ll need to review your unique policy. However, Delta Dental policies typically offer the highest percentage of coverage, between 80 and 100%, for dental exams, teeth cleanings, and other preventive services. For minor restorative treatments like fillings, Delta will usually offer 70 to 80% coverage. For more advanced restorations like dental crowns and replacement teeth, you can expect to receive 50 to 70% coverage. Insurance benefits for other services, like orthodontics and dental sedation, are outlined in specific policies. We will need to review your insurance documentation before offering estimated coverage for these treatments.
