Composite Bonding Aftercare

If you have minor flaws in your teeth, composite 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 in Warrington.

Additionally to this, composite 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.

Composite 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 composite 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 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

Many aspects of our lifestyle 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’s health.

6. Visit our Dental Hygienists for composite bonding aftercare

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 scale and polish, we also have special hygiene treatments like airflow to remove any surface staining.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
