- Whether you have dental insurance or not: If you are enrolled in a dental insurance policy, your out of pocket expenses will likely be less if you see an in-network provider. If not, you will need to look at other options for payment.
- What type of restorative care you will need: Whether it is a dental crown, root canal, filling, or tooth extraction, each type of service varies with regard to coverage. While you may only pay 20-30% for a crown, you will likely need to pay more for a root canal (30-50%).
