What is CEREC and what does it mean for me?
CEREC is one visit dentistry using computer aided design where dentists design and mill out permanent restorations in office.  No more impression material or temporary restorations to wear
home for two weeks.  CEREC allows patients to go home with crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers the same appointment day!  Restorations are milled from blocks of porcelain or zirconia and are extremely durable.  CEREC is inevitably the wave of the future!  Please feel free to call our office to schedule a consultation to see if CEREC is right for you!
PALA Digital Dentures: Digital Dentures vs. traditional dentures
PALA Digital Dentures are created using CAD?CAM 3D technology, the same technology used in CEREC.
Digital dentures are a new, more accurate, and involve less chair time than in traditional denture production.  Typical denture production can require 3-5 visits however, with PALA Digital Dentures we can deliver in 2-3 visits.  Furthermore, due to the CAD/CAM accurate technology patients eliminate multiple appointments needed for denture adjustments as with traditional dentures.

Unused benefits on dental insurance plan

The year end is soon approaching. Each year insurance companies make millions of dollars off patients who forego necessary and preventative dental treatment. Many individuals who are paying for dental insurance do not realize their plans provide coverage up to a certain dollar amount annually.

As a valued patient of our office, your dental health is important. We encourage you to check your dental insurance plan for any unused benefit and if necessary call us and schedule an appointment for any preventative or major treatment you may need or want.

If you have any questions, please call and discuss your concerns with the business staff.

Dental Crown—Is it Right for You?

I’m Dr. Leon J Witkowski, Jr DDS and my son and I practice general and cosmetic dentistry in Mokena, IL but we also serve the Frankfort IL, New Lenox, Orland Park and Tinley Park communities.

There are a lot of reasons why you might want a dental crown. When the tooth is severely damaged, discolored or misshapen, crowns can be placed over it to effectively hide the ugly look. When the tooth has been weakened by heavy fillings, a crown can be counted upon to strengthen it. So there are functional uses for crowns on top of its aesthetic purposes.

The procedure requires two visits to the dentist. On the first visit, the tooth will be prepared for the crown. The damaged part will be cleaned, some tooth enamel will need to be removed so that the crown will fit and an impression will be taken of your teeth. This impression will then be sent to the lab to have your crown made by the technician. Then, you will be given a temporary crown while you wait for your second appointment. On your second visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown will be fitted on top of the damaged tooth and cemented. The damaged tooth is then restored to its functional state.

You have the option of having porcelain, metal alloy or a combination of both for a dental crown. So far, porcelain is the most popular because it has the most natural appearance. Metal alloy is the most durable but you can have a combination of the two to get the best of both worlds. When you combine both materials, you get the natural appearance of porcelain and the durability of metal alloy.

When you need a dental crown to repair damaged teeth, your bill will normally be paid by your insurance company. But when you have it for aesthetic purposes, it would usually come as an out-of-pocket expense.

If you’re curious about what we could do for you, we offer a complimentary consultation and you will have our undivided attention while we discuss your dental needs. Call for an appointment at 708-479-9888 or visit our website at http://www.witkowskidental.com. We look forward to speaking with you.
