What is the cost of dental insurance?

A lot can go wrong with your teeth and gums. That’s why it’s so important to take good care of your dental health. Plaque build-up, cavities, sensitivity and gingivitis are just a few of the problems that affects countless people. Eating properly, brushing correctly, flossing and visiting a dentist at least once a year are some of the ways to ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and strong.

For most of us, dentist visits are expensive. Teeth cleaning can cost anything between R300 – R600, while extractions and fillings can cost over R1 000. Bridges, crowns and implants on the other hand start at a minimum of R10 000. It is no wonder then, that so many people do not see a dentist regularly, if at all.

At Bloom, we value your health. We understand the importance of visiting a dentist. That’s why we’ve designed our medical and dental insurance options with affordability, accessibility and family in mind.
