While taking advantage of the mild weather in the Ardennes to go for a little bike ride, Delphine, 27, had an unexpected encounter: “I, who am used to riding on all terrains, I lost control of my bike and couldn’t avoid a tree. Everything happened very quickly and I broke a tooth. Result: two visits to the dentist to devitalize this tooth and place a crown”.
At the time of doing the accounts, Delphine was pleased to have taken out dental care insurance, in this case a DKV Smile Essential: “In total, I should have had nearly €1,400 for devitalization and Crown. But after the intervention of my health insurance (€218), and above all, that of DKV for what was not covered (€1,182), I did not have to pay anything for my treatment. A relieved, smiling Delphine – and a little more vigilant now.
Smile, literally, with all your teeth
At 37, Julien doesn’t ride a bike, but he’s missing two teeth and needs a four-piece bridge. Before the bridge can be placed, his teeth must be devitalized so that they are de-inflamed. “My dentist explained to me that it represented a little more than €3,800 in total for the two treatments”.
Luckily for him, four years earlier, Julien had taken out DKV Smile Premium dental insurance with DKV. “In the end, I only had to pay €730 for my treatment. “His insurance took charge, after intervention of the social security, 80% of the curative care and the bridge a saving of nearly 2.918 € in total. What, literally, make him smile again.
Dental care insurance, a growing success
Dental care insurance is not just for insiders, we can all ensure a healthy smile. To protect yourself in the event of an accident, of course, but not only: depending on the formulas and the needs, this insurance can cover curative, preventive or even prosthetic care, in whole or in part.
