How to Care for Bonded Teeth
How long bonding lasts depends on how much bonding you have done and your oral habits, so it’s important to give bonded teeth the same amount of care and attention as your natural teeth. Bonding material is prone to staining, so watch how often you consume substances that can stain, such as tea, coffee, cigarette smoke and wine. It’s especially important to avoid consuming staining foods for the first 48 hours after any composite procedure.
In the days after having the bonding placed, call your dentist if you notice sharp edges on the bonded teeth, or your teeth feel unusual when you bite down. Always call your dentist if the bonding chips or pieces fall off completely.
Tooth bonding is a simple and inexpensive way to repair chipped or discolored teeth and give you back the confidence you need to flash your pearly whites. Talk to your dentist to determine if tooth bonding is the right solution for you.
