  • Cosmetic dentistry Port Lavaca dentist

    As the year comes to a close, we tend to look forward to what we’ll do better moving forward.  A new year is about resolving to improve and a great time to put the past behind us.  However, if you are ending the year without maximizing your dental insurance benefits, may we recommend a New Year’s resolution?  Consult with the dentist Port Lavaca residents trust for their family and cosmetic dentistry needs.  We are dedicated to your oral health and can help you understand how your dental insurance policy is designed to help you.

    Start with your questions

    It is common to not understand how insurance policies work.  Do you know what is covered by your policy, and what isn’t?  Our Port Lavaca dentist staff is happy to work with your insurance provider and you to determine what your policy covers.  Insurance providers and your HR department can answer many of your questions.  Our staff also plays a big role in getting the support you need for your oral health.

    Typical dental insurance policies

    Typical policies for your oral health needs include two basic dental exams each year.  Our Port Lavaca dentist uses the dental exams to examine your teeth, provide a professional cleaning, and to ensure your oral health is in good condition.  We conduct an oral cancer screening, check for TMJ issues, and use X-rays when necessary to look for underlying health issues such as cavities.  If you have dental insurance but haven’t taken advantage of it, make a point in the New Year to maximize that which is owed to you. 

    Beyond the dental exam

    Basic dental insurance policies are designed to support an already healthy mouth.  So what happens when you have a cavity?  Our Port Lavaca dentist has experience working with the top insurance providers in the nation.  Some policies will cover amalgam fillings or a portion of the procedure.  If you would prefer a filling that blends in with your natural smile, talk with us about our cosmetic dentistry white composite fillings.  We work with you and your insurance company to help you understand ahead of time what out of pocket expenses you may have.  Being able to set up a plan of action and understanding what portion you will be responsible for means there won’t be any surprises.  Your savings and oral health are one of our top priorities.

    So as the clock moves into the New Year, give our team a call.  Set up your appointments for your dental cleanings and exams, and consult with us should you have questions about our services.  Visit our Facebook page to learn more or find your answers on our website.  We wish you and yours a wonderful New Year and look forward to seeing you soon.
