How to Properly Care for Dental Bonding

Posted on 6/15/2017 by Dr. Michael Drone

Dental bonding is a great way to help restore your smile. It can help with discoloration, chips, cracks, and even cover darker fillings in some cases. It isn't a permanent fix, but so long as you are caring for your bonding well, you can expect a good 10-15 years before it would need to be replaced.

It is very important that you care for your bonding properly to get the most longevity out of it. Here are a few tips to helping your bonding last as long as possible.

Protecting and Caring for Your Dental Bonding

First, be gentle with it. Don't go opening up bottles with your teeth, for your teeth's sake and for the bonding's sake. It will cause pressure cracks, which can get the bonding to come off. Second, don't stain it up.

Dental bonding is resistant to many stains, but it only lasts so long. You need to be careful when eating beets or curries, or when drinking wine or coffee. These items can cause stains that may outlast your bonding if you aren't careful.

Finally, you want to make sure you keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine. Caring for your teeth properly will go a long way towards keeping the teeth healthy that are holding the bonds.

You want them healthy to help keep your bonds sticking and looking their best. So, make sure you floss once daily, brush twice daily, and rinse with alcohol-free mouthwash for 30-60 seconds, too.

Contact our office if you are considering dental bonding. They can give you the ins and outs of the procedure, plus tell you the best tricks to helping it last as long as possible. For a strong, healthy, and happy smile, cover up imperfections that otherwise held you back with dental bonding.
