Dentist Evanston

Do you have a question about a particular dental treatment? While we’re happy to educate you during your appointment, we also receive some questions more often than others. That’s why, on this page, we’ve answered some of the dental questions that we get asked the most frequently. Please call us if you have any additional questions or concerns!

Will you take my dental insurance?

Bowdental of Evanston is happy to accept all PPO dental insurance plans, and we’re even in-network with several of the leading providers. No matter which insurance plan you have, you can rely on our expert team to file your claims for you so that you don’t have to stress about paperwork. Instead, you can simply relax and enjoy the savings!

I don’t have dental insurance. How else can I make my care affordable?

Signing up for our in-house dental membership plan is a great way to save on your care if you don’t have insurance. It provides similar coverage to traditional insurance for a lower price. You’ll also get discounts on many services that insurance tends to not pay for, such as cosmetic treatments. In short, it’s a more affordable, convenient, and simpler alternative to insurance.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

Please call us right away if you’re experiencing an urgent dental problem. Our dental office is happy to accept emergency patients and is able to offer same-day appointments in many cases. Even if we can’t see you that day, we can provide tips on managing your situation over the phone in the meantime.

What’s the best way to replace my missing teeth?

Our dental office offers several methods of tooth replacement, including dental bridges and full and partial dentures. However, dental implants are the option that looks and feels the most like your natural teeth. Since our dentists have completed extensive dental implant training, they can handle the entire process in-house for your convenience.

How can I straighten my teeth without braces?

These days, bracket-and-wire braces aren’t the only orthodontic treatment out there. At Bowdental of Evanston, we’re proud to offer Invisalign clear aligners as a more image-friendly option. Teens and adults alike can straighten their teeth using see-through plastic trays that don’t come with the hassles of metal braces.

Does your dental office treat children?

Yes! We love seeing the littlest smiles in your family and setting the foundation for them to have a lifetime of great oral health. Because we’re a family dental office, we can even continue seeing your child as they age into adulthood, making that transition easier.
