Check back each month to see what the new tip is and how it will help you in keeping your smile healthy.
Dental insurance isn’t always readily available to you or those under your care. It may be that your employer doesn’t offer it, you can’t find an affordable plan, you are waiting for your dental coverage to begin, and other reasons. No matter the reason, the care of your teeth is still important and costs may arise to care for them and to fix any issues you may have. You never know when a dental expense might arise and it’s important to be prepared for it.
Luckily, there is an option for those who need important work done on their teeth yet lack dental insurance to pay for it. CareCredit is healthcare credit card designed to help you and your family pay for dental and healthcare costs without having to wait for funds to become available. With CareCredit, you can pay for your dental costs in smaller monthly payments that work for you and your family. You won’t have to pay one large sum of money up front and will have more time to pay off your dental costs.
Another great benefit of CareCredit, is that it doesn’t only pay for emergency dental procedures. CareCredit pays for a variety of dental care treatments from large to small. Here are some of the preventative dental care treatments and procedures you can use CareCredit to pay for:
- 6-month check-ups
- Periodontal scaling
- Periodontal disease prevention
- Gingivitis prevention
- Fluoride treatment
- Ceramic fillings
- Teeth cleaning
Improving the overall look of your smile can also be covered by using CareCredit. Some cosmetic procedures you can get done include:
- Dental implants
- Ceramic crowns
- Braces or retainers
- Tooth repair
These are just an example of the treatments and procedures covered by CareCredit and may vary depending on your dental provider. Call your dentist to discuss what can be paid for using CareCredit.
Don’t let the health and care of your teeth be delayed because of the inability to pay. CareCredit will allow you to get the care you need, when you need without waiting. You can go to your dentist knowing you will be able to pay for the procedures you need.
