I have dental insurance and it is a PPO. Trying to stay within the network since I do get better coverages that way I picked a dentist from their plan provider list. I have never been to this dentist before and it had be a little over a year since I have seen a dentist.
I went in for my basic X-rays and cleaning deal and was told that I have three cavities. One of them being very large that the dentist told me I should have it crowned. Adding crown cost and what my plan will cover I am still looking at a cost to me of around $575.00. This is an added expense that I was not expecting to have when my teeth do not even hurt me. I would think if I had all that going on I would have know it.
I would like to know if I had a second opinion from another dentist would dental insurance normally cover for that? I am not sure and it does not say any thing about it in the packet information they gave to me.
