After-Care: Dental Bonding

March 26, 2018

Do you have a chipped, stained or cracked tooth? If the answer is yes, then dental bonding can be an ideal procedure that can help! Bonding is a simple, quick and inexpensive dental procedure that will only require a single visit to the dentist, which would last for approximately 30 to 60 minutes.

Once you have completed a dental bonding treatment, your bonded teeth don’t require special after-care. The composite bonds stick well on your tooth, and with a proper oral hygiene routine, the bonding material can actually last for about ten years. Just make sure that along with your oral routine, you follow the appropriate guidelines for brushing and flossing. It is also important to visit your dentist to assess your overall oral health regularly.

In addition, eating the right food and drinking plenty of water contribute to having a healthy oral mucosa. Avoid food and beverages that can stain your teeth and wear down the bonding material used in the dental bonding procedure. Smoking is highly advised against as it can leave brown and yellow stains on the composite bond used in the process. Lastly, avoid chewing hard candy, ice and crunchy food that can put your teeth under stress, which if left unmanaged can lead to composite damage and dental fractures.

By following the after-care tips of dental bonding, you’ll have a long-lasting result, and this can help you maintain your beaming smile! If you have other concerns regarding dental bonding, feel free to reach out to us Toronto Beach Dental located in the Toronto Beaches.

Happy Dental Care!
