How to Maintain Your Bonded Teeth Through Tooth Bonding Aftercare

If you have minor flaws in your teeth, tooth bonding can be a great option for you to rectify the issue. Problems such as stained or chipped teeth are just some of the ways dental bonding can help and it can be an efficient alternative compared to veneers.

Additional to this, tooth bonding aftercare is rather simple and doesn’t require any special requirements. Specific aftercare instructions aren’t necessarily needed and your composite resin can be maintained as long as possible.

Tooth Bonding Aftercare Instructions

Basic aftercare for your bonded teeth can help to keep them looking attractive and natural. They’re affected more by staining and chipping compared to other treatments, so it’s important that standard aftercare is maintained. Your dentist will also most likely provide aftercare instructions after your treatment. Here are some tooth bonding aftercare tips to keep your bonded teeth in good condition:

1. Brushing twice a day 

This should be a standard routine for many patients, but if you don’t do so already you should look to brush your teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. To ensure your teeth can be thoroughly cleaned, purchase a toothpaste with fluoride and aim to change your toothbrush every 3-4 months.

2. Floss and Tepe

Brushing doesn’t necessarily clean all the surfaces of your teeth. To ensure they’re thoroughly cleaned you should floss or tepe after your brush. Aim to bring the floss right down to the gum line to remove all the plaque and then continue to the next tooth.

3. Drink water after meals

There are plenty of sugars and acids contained in the food you eat and these can easily linger after your meal. To reduce acidity levels in your mouth and remove any leftover foods in your teeth, drink water after you eat. 

4. Avoid products that easily stain your teeth

There are many aspects of our lifestyle that can contribute to staining teeth. Products containing tobacco, like smoking, can cause the teeth to discolour and turn yellow. This can also apply to drinking coffee regularly. Other foods and drinks to consider include wine, juice and even curries which contain high levels of artificial colours. Try to avoid having these foods where you can to avoid staining your bonded teeth.

5. Reduce habits that can affect composite resin

Composite resin helps to provide your teeth with a natural look and improve their appearance. Bad habits such as biting your nails and biting on pens can easily wear down the resin on your teeth and reduce enamel over time. It can also make the resin prone to chipping, so avoid these habits to maintain the resin health.

6. Visit our Dental Hygienists

Here at Dental Solutions in Lymm, we recommend that you visit your hygienist at least twice a year to keep the investment that you have made in your smile in tip top shape. In addition to the usual scrape and polish, we also have special hygiene treatments like airflow to remove any surface staining.
