Composite Bonding Aftercare

Composite Bonding Aftercare

Are you looking to improve your smile due to chipped, broken, or discoloured teeth? Composite bonding is a quick and wallet-friendly option for a beautiful transformation. 

Stick around; it’s simpler than you think.


Key Takeaways

  • Brush your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss regularly to maintain the health of your composite bonding.
  • Avoid drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and dark sodas that can stain your teeth. Choose water or milk instead to keep your smile bright.
  • Visit your dentist every six months for routine check-ups and cleanings to catch any issues early and keep your bonded teeth looking their best.



Aftercare Tips for Composite Bonding

Oral hygiene

For great oral health, brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use string floss at least once every day to clean your teeth. This helps keep both your teeth and bonding in excellent condition.

Also, using mouthwash can help kill germs in places where brushing and flossing might be missed.

Make drinking water a habit throughout the day. It washes away bits of food and keeps your mouth moist. A dry mouth can harm composite bonding, so staying hydrated is key. 

Plus, visiting your dentist for routine cleanings every six months will make sure everything looks good and stays healthy.

Avoiding staining foods and drinks

Keeping your mouth clean and teeth brushed is a must, but it’s also key to watch what you eat and drink. Some foods and drinks can stain your composite bonding or change its colour.

It’s wise to avoid these if you want your smile makeover to last longer.

Foods that are known for staining teeth include coffee, tea, red wine, and dark sodas. These drinks have strong colours that can stick to your bonding material. Similarly, some acidic foods might harm the enamel around your bonded teeth.

Instead of reaching for these items, choose water or milk which won’t leave marks on your teeth. 

Chewing sugar-free gum after meals helps too by increasing saliva in your mouth, which cleanses the teeth naturally without harming the bonding.

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings

Going to the dentist every six months is key for keeping your teeth in good shape. These visits help catch any issues early, like gum disease or cavities. Dentists also give your teeth a deep clean that you can’t do at home.

They use special tools to remove tartar and plaque from areas hard to reach with just a toothbrush and dental floss.

During these check-ups, dentists can look at how well composite bonding and other cosmetic dental treatments are holding up. If they see signs of wear or damage, they can fix it right away.

This helps make sure your smile stays bright and healthy for longer.
