Bupa Dental Insurance

If you haven't got a filling, well done, but sadly most of the UK adult population has at least one filling.  When visiting the dentist, if they deem that you need a filling they will need to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then 'fill' the area where the decay once was.  Fillings can also be used to repair cracked teeth or those worn by tooth grinding.

First, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. Next the decayed area will be removed with a drill or some similar implement. During the decay removal process your dentist will check the whole area to make sure all the decay has been removed. Onceremoved, your dentist will prepare the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris. Generally, after the filling is in, your dentist will finish and polish it.  Metal or tooth coloured fillings are available and these involve different levels of treatment depending on the colour selected.

I was recommended to Paul Lewis for dental insurance by my dentist. Paul carefully explained all the features of the dental insurance plan and answered my numerous questions and concerns.

We have been delighted with Get Dental and would highly recommend it to individuals or other companies for dental insurance. The policy is inexpensive and gives a wide cover of all aspects of dental care.

Our practice has greatly benefited from working with Get Dental Plans mainly as a result of the Corporate dental plan from BUPA as this allows patients to receive the treatment they need rather than the treatment they can afford.
