Cleaning and Oral Evaluations

We emphasize getting your teeth cleaned and evaluated once every 6 months. Most insurance policies will cover these preventative visits at 100%.

 

Crowns

We treat every crown differently.    We make every attempt to deliver an aesthetically pleasing crown. Most insurance policies will cover crowns at 50%.

 

Extractions

We make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease. Most insurance policies will cover extractions about 80%. 

 

 

Fillings

In order to restore function, structure, or stop the spread of decay, a filling is one way a dentist can preserve the health of your teeth. Most insurance policies cover between 50-80% plus your deductible.

 

 

Implants

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities.

 

 

Nightguards

Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. Meanwhile, snoring can impact the quality of your own sleep and that of those around you. Most insurance policies will not cover. However, there are a few policies that cover 50% of this procedure.

 

 

Periodontal Maintenance

Among the causes for periodontal (gum) disease are genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal maintenance involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. Most insurance policies cover this every 3 months at 100%.

 

 

Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter. Insurance will not cover this procedure.
