Frequently Asked Questions
Our team at Atrium Family Dental is always happy to answer your questions and address any concerns – we want patients to feel confident about choosing to trust their smiles in our hands! For added convenience, several of the FAQs we hear most often and their answers have been compiled below. If you’ve read through the page and still don’t see the information you need, please contact us directly in New Lenox, IL.
Can you help me improve my smile’s appearance?
Absolutely. We offer an extensive menu of cosmetic services that are specifically designed to help teeth overcome noticeable imperfections and shine in the way our patients deserve. Possible options include porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, professional teeth whitening (both in-office and take-home), direct bonding, and more.
What do you recommend for replacing missing teeth?
Dental implants are the best choice for reliable, long-lasting tooth replacement. Unlike more traditional services, they faithfully replicate every part of the original tooth’s anatomy, providing unparalleled stability, function, and cosmetic value. Patients who choose dental implants should be able to enjoy their replenished smile for decades, if not the rest of their lives.
Of course, no treatment plan can be the perfect fit for every patient in need. Our experienced dentists will be happy to explain all available options in further detail and help you determine the best fit for your unique goals, budget, and personal preferences.
Do I need to see a specialist if I want dental implants?
No, you won’t. Our dentists have the specialty training and experience needed to smoothly perform every stage of the implant procedure, including the initial surgery, right here in our New Lenox practice. Our commitment to comprehensive care results in added convenience for our patients and cuts down on unnecessary travel time, helping them stay with a team they already know and trust throughout their smile transformation.
Do you welcome dental emergencies?
Yes, we do. Whether you are a reoccurring patient or brand-new to the office, don’t hesitate to contact Atrium Family Dental with serious dental injuries and/or discomfort. We will do everything in our power to accommodate you as soon as possible, providing much-needed relief and restorative assistance. In many cases, same-day appointments can be arranged!
I wish I could straighten my teeth, but metal braces aren’t an option. Is there another way?
Invisalign® Clear Braces is an excellent orthodontic service that’s perfect for teenagers and adults alike who want to prioritize their appearance while correcting misalignments and gaps. Instead of having to wear silver brackets and wires, you’ll use a set of clear, plastic aligners that are extremely subtle when worn. Their removable nature allows patients to continue to eat favorite foods and practice oral hygiene like normal at home, no inconvenient routine changes required.
Do you take dental insurance?
Atrium Family Dental is an in-network provider for Delta Dental Premier, and we also happily file claims for most other PPO insurance plans in order to help patients and families take full advantage of the benefits available to them.

Do you offer appointment times outside of normal business hours?
Our doctors understand how difficult it can be to juggle work commitments, family time, and important errands alongside routine dental care. That’s why Atrium Family Dental is open until 7:00pm on Mondays and Tuesdays and starts seeing patients at 7:30am on Wednesdays. By offering this extra flexibility, we hope to help our patients cut down on unnecessary stress and smile brighter in day-to-day life.
