How dental Insurance can help with dental payments

Dental insurance can help with payment of your dental bills. At Smile Kingston, we accept patients who have dental insurance from Allianz, BUPA, Simply Health, Cigna, and many other leading companies.

All you need to do is pay us for your dental costs, and then claim the money back from your dental insurance provider. Be sure to check the finer details of your policy, as some may only pay out if you’ve been with the insurer for at least 3 or 6 months.

Treatment that is covered by dental insurance

Most dental insurance providers will cover general dental treatments such as routine check-ups and X-rays, and some may even cover hygiene appointments, emergency dental treatment and other restorative treatments (such as crowns, and root canals).

Cosmetic treatment such as teeth straightening, or teeth whitening are not typically included.

To be sure, it is always worth finding out before having your treatment done, as the amount of cover provided may differ depending on the amount you pay for the insurance.
