If you are having problems with your teeth and are worried you might need major services, dental insurance can help lower your out-of-pocket costs, so a trip to the dentist doesn't have to break the bank.

But what qualifies as major dental services, and what is restorative dentistry? And what about dental insurance for major restorative care? Does it even exist? Let's look at all of those questions below.

What is considered restorative major dental care?

Restorative dental care includes a variety of treatments and procedures that your dentist or a specialist will use to, as the name implies, restore the health of your teeth and gums. Restorative dental care is all about fixing teeth that have been damaged or replacing teeth that fell out or had to be extracted.

Restorative treatments can fall under basic or major dental services.

For example, a filling might be classified as a basic service that your insurance covers at 80%, while a dental implant might be a major service that’s covered at 50%. And, when it comes to root canals, one insurance provider might classify it as a basic service while another might deem it a major service. 

Why do you need restorative dentistry?

Unlike cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening or veneers used only to improve the look of your smile, restorative dental services can improve the health of your pearly whites when they’ve been damaged by injury or decay. Everything from fillings and root canals to crowns and bridges can be considered restorative dental treatments.  

Common restorative dental procedures

Here are some of the ways that various restorative dental services can improve your oral health:

  • Fillings can be used to fix teeth that have developed cavities. 
  • Bridges, dentures, and implants can be used to replace missing teeth. 
  • Root canals can remove extensive decay and save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. 
  • Crowns can restore the look and function of damaged teeth or those that needed a root canal.
  • Inlays can be an alternative to standard fillings in certain situations.
