Regular dental care is important for a healthy smile. And a healthy body. With the Cigna Dental Care® plan, you get comprehensive dental coverage that's easy to use. At a wallet-friendly price. Now that's something to smile about.

This overview shows you a sampling of covered services. And what your plan pays. For a full listing of covered services, please call Customer Service at 800.Cigna24 (800.244.6224).

Get the most value from your plan

With your Cigna Dental Care plan, some preventive services are covered at 100%. (See chart below.) Your plan also covers many other dental services that help your mouth stay healthy.

Your Cigna Dental Care plan is a copayment plan. Here's how it works. When you get a dental service, Cigna allows your network dentist to charge a certain amount. Then you pay a fixed portion of that cost, in addition to any allowable charge for upgraded materials (such as gold, high noble metal or porcelain used in molar restorations), CAD/CAM services, complex rehabilitation or characterizations (for dentures). And your plan pays the rest. There are no annual maximums and no deductibles!

Review your plan materials for more information about how your plan works. If you have questions before enrollment, call 800.Cigna24 (800.244.6224) and select the "Enrollment Information" prompt.
