At Dental Care of Oak Brook, we take pride in your smile. From routine cleanings and check-ups, to toothaches and more, we are there for you to ensure the highest level of dental care. Dr. Kimet and her team are dedicated to your dental health.
The first step to a healthy mouth is scheduling regular dental hygiene visits, recommended every three, four or six months. Dr. Kimet may recommend more or less frequent appointments depending on your age, lifestyle, risk factors (pregnancy, previous history of periodontal disease, diabetes, genetic factors) and general oral and dental health. At our routine hygiene visits, you will receive an exam every six months to check for cavities and other conditions. We will also take any necessary x-rays at the appropriate intervals based on the American Dental Association's recommendation and your individual oral health needs.
Whether decay, breakage, and or the wearing down of your teeth have left your mouth feeling less than normal, you may need a filling. Dr. Kimet uses several methods to detect the decay, including observation and x-rays, to full diagnose the problem. Dental Care of Oak Brook offers composite resin fillings that match the natural color of your tooth by blending shades of composite material. Dr. Kimet will make sure you are fully numb and comfortable before any filling treatment begins. Following treatment, you may experience sensitivity for one to two weeks.
Over time, teeth can change from pearly white to an unattractive stained color. If the color of your teeth is stopping your smile, there is a simple, pain-free fix. Teeth whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Your teeth can darken for any number of reasons, including injury or medications or from external factors such as food, tobacco or coffee. While some over-the-counter whitening toothpastes can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter, these products often have abrasive substances that can wear at your tooth enamel.
If you've found yourself with a missing tooth or teeth and do not want to consider dentures, dental implants are an effective and long-lasting alternative. Made of biocompatible material like metal or ceramic, implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, making the difference unnoticeable. Dental implants are synthetic structures placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge.
When we look good on the outside, we often feel better on the inside. Cosmetic dentistry and aesthetic dental procedures can be used for repairing or correcting your teeth to form the perfect smile. At Dental Care of Oakbrook, we offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. Our state-of-the-art procedures can change the overall shape of teeth, leaving you with a lasting, beautiful smile.
If you are looking for an overall tooth makeover, porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of badly stained, shaped or crooked teeth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. This pain-free process involves little or no anesthesia and have a much longer life expectancy than bonding. Typically, veneers entail at least three appointments: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.
Do you have gaps in your teeth or dislike the coloring of your teeth? Bonding may be a great option for you. Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit, with results lasting for several years. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonding is an excellent and efficient choice. However, bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration such as veneers.
