What Does Dental Insurance Cover?

Posted on February 28th, 2017 by

Whether you already have a dental insurance plan, or are considering signing up for one, it’s important to know what kinds of services your plan covers. Dental insurance plans offer many benefits that can help you keep your pearly whites happy. Below are some of the procedures and services that may be covered, and how you can make the most of your plan.

Preventive Care

Going to your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings is essential for keeping your smile bright and healthy, and many dental insurance plans cover this preventive care by paying 80 to 100 percent of the cost of your visit. Keeping up with preventive care helps stop cavities, gingivitis, tooth decay, and other dental problems. By taking advantage of this insurance benefit, you’ll be keeping your teeth in top shape, and may be able to avoid costlier procedures in the future.

Fillings and Root Canals

Even with proper brushing and regular dentist visits, cavities can happen, and if they do, your insurance can help you cover the costs. Dental plans often pay 70 to 80 percent of the costs of fillings and root canals, giving you peace of mind and leaving you with a renewed and happy smile.

Crowns and Major Procedures

For teeth that need a little more TLC, dental insurance providers will often pay 50 percent of the costs of more complicated dental procedures, like crowns or bridges. These processes can help create a brighter smile, restore your ability to eat without pain, and improve your ability to speak clearly, helping you restore your confidence and comfort.
Dental insurance plans and the benefits they offer can vary, so be sure to check with your provider to find out more about the specific procedures and services you can receive. And make sure you’re taking advantage of your preventive care benefit by seeing a dentist at least once a year!

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
