How Dental Insurance Can Help With Dental Payments

Dental insurance can help with payment of your dental bills. At Reading Smiles, we accept all kinds of dental insurance both personal and corporate including BUPA, Allianz, Cigna, Simply Health, and many other leading companies.

With dental insurance, you will pay for your dental costs with us and then claim the money back from your insurer. Some policies will only pay out if you’ve been with them for at least 3 or 6 months, so it is worth checking your policy.

Treatment That is Covered by Dental Insurances

All dental insurance policies are different, but most will cover general maintenance such as check-ups, X-Rays and scale and polish. They will also cover dental emergency treatment and payment for restorative treatment such as fillings, crowns and root canals.

Cosmetic treatment such as teeth whitening or teeth straightening for adults are not usually 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.

The Benefits

Taking out a dental insurance policy can be an effective way to manage dental costs, especially if you think you may incur some large treatment expenses.

Dental insurance gives you peace of mind that it will cover costs in a manageable way for example for a dental emergency should you need it. You can usually choose whether to pay monthly or annually to suit your circumstances.

If you’re considering taking out a dental insurance policy, you should bear in mind whether your dentist is a private or NHS dentist as policies will differ.

Don’t forget, you may also consider our Membership Plan as an alternative way to help spread the cost of your dental treatment.
