Using Dental Insurance Benefits Before the Year Ends

Dental Work: The Best Time Of Year Is NOW!

Many of us have already spent much of our insurance deductible, which means that you can receive otherwise expensive treatment at a way lower expense (maybe even free!) than what you originally thought.  Further, many patients often don’t maximize their treatment benefits before the end of the year, which means they’ve missed out on the treatment options that might have been covered. Nevertheless, our patients are always surprised to learn about this and are delighted when they find out they can possibly get the smile they’ve always dreamed of for much less and with much ease than what they thought.

All Dental Treatments Are Open For Discussion

Here at Short Pump Dental, we love providing our patients with the best possible care and helping them achieve their smile’s full potential.  That’s done through a wide array of treatment options and excellent dentistry. While not everyone may need or want dentistry work done, the difference is absolutely clear for those that have do decide to utilize the maximum potential dental treatments can offer. 

Some services that we specialize in include:

  • General Dentistry - These are some of the seemingly basic services that are often neglected, but when utilized regularly, can be the difference between pulling teeth, and allowing them to last a lifetime. Services like teeth cleanings, root canals, fillings, crowns, and more are all available here.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry - Beyond our standard treatment options include some of our cosmetic dental services. These allow you to smile brighter than ever before with brilliant teeth that can go toe-to-toe with any celebrity's smile you choose. Cosmetic dental work includes work like: teeth whitening, veneers, implants, bridges, and more. 
  • Periodontal Dentistry- Finally, keeping your gums healthy is critical to for the health and protection of your teeth. The gums act as a protective covering for the teeth, and without keeping them healthy, it'd be like trying to sleep in a gazebo during a hurricane. You absolutely need a protective covering, and your gums provide exactly that. If you are unsure if your gums are in tip top shape, come in for an examination, and we'll be sure to set you straight!

Many patients often avoid these options because it can be expensive having to pay the entire deductible of your dental insurance for any of these services, or they are worried their benefits won’t cover it.  However, toward the end of the year is the best time to complete these services because you’ve likely met your deductible or are very close to it and your benefits might not be maxed out yet.  Lastly, if your benefits are close to being maxed out, we can often split treatments over time so that you can get treatment now and once 2017 rolls around.      

Take Advantage of Your insurance!

You may be able to get more benefits out of your insurance or have your benefits be split between 2016 and 2017, so you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.  Insurance is complicated and though we do our best to aid our patients with estimating the overall cost, it can be tricky.  Regardless, we work with our patients to find the most affordable dental treatment option for them.  Learn more about your insurance and our financial plans.
