"I would highly recommend Oakbrook Dental and Dr. Habib Rahemtulla to individuals and families for their dental care and treatment. I would also like to give high praises to my dental hygienist, Kelly Skladanek. She is very gentle, super friendly, thorough and professional. She will educate you on proper dental care and hygiene while thoroughly cleaning your teeth. Oakbrook Dental is the BEST!!"

Oakbrook Dental was such a great experience. When I first stepped foot into the office, Kim and Judy had a smile on their face and greeted me so kindly. I then met my dental assistant Laura who made me feel very relaxed and calm at my visit. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment which I very much appreciate being as anxious as I am. I then met Dr. Patel who was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and she made me feel very comfortable as well. I would recommend OakBrook Dental to everyone I know! :)

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that uses dental resin to reshape and restore your smile. In the bonding process, this tooth-colored material is applied directly to your tooth, and then reshaped, hardened, and trimmed by a dentist to enhance your smile.

This treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues, such as gaps between the teeth, uneven teeth, misshapen teeth, gaps between the teeth, and more. Once the process is finished, the tooth will look and feel completely natural.

The Dental Bonding Process

To begin the process, Dr. Major or Dr. Patel will clean your mouth. Usually, numbing is not required for dental bonding. But we do offer sedation dentistry at our office, which may be a good option if you have dental anxiety or are nervous about your procedure.

Next, Dr. Major or Dr. Patel will apply a mild acid to your tooth. This roughens it up and prepares it for the bonding process. Then, they will rinse away the acid after a few minutes, select dental resin that matches the color of your teeth, and apply it directly to the tooth.

Using special tools, they will reshape and sculpt the resin to restore the shape and appearance of your tooth. Once the overall shape looks good, the resin will be hardened with an ultraviolet light. Then, Dr. Major or Dr. Patel will use a dental drill to trim and refine the resin until the tooth looks perfect. The entire process usually takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth.

Is Dental Bonding Considered A Cosmetic Treatment?

In most cases, yes. Dental bonding is usually considered to be a cosmetic treatment, so it’s not usually covered by dental insurance, and you’ll have to pay for it out of pocket.

However, there are some exceptions. If you experience a dental injury and get a chip in a front tooth, for example, your dental insurance policy may cover some of the cost of dental bonding to restore your tooth. We recommend contacting your insurer directly for more information.

Aftercare For Dental Bonding

You don’t need to do anything special after your dental bonding treatment, and you can get back to your normal diet and daily routine right away. Just continue brushing and flossing regularly, and make sure to come back and see Dr. Patel or Dr. Major for six-month teeth cleanings and oral exams.

Preventive Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Why Are Professional Cleanings So Important?

Professional cleanings help remove plaque and tartar from surfaces of your teeth that are often too difficult to reach with a toothbrush or floss. These cleanings also give our dentists a chance to examine your mouth and check for signs of common oral health issues. Without a professional cleaning, you’ll be much more prone to developing cavities and/or gum disease.

How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that most patients visit the dentist every six months. Some patients, such as those with gum disease, may need to see the dentist more frequently. Routine visits will ensure that your mouth is a healthy environment for you teeth and gums.

What Will Happen If I Don’t Visit Regularly?

If you don’t visit the dentist regularly, we won’t be able to check for common oral health issues and your risk of developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease will be much higher. No matter how well you clean your teeth, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach spaces, and only professional dentists have the tools to remove harmful bacteria from these areas.
