Ways of Keeping Your Dental Bonding Longer

Posted on 6/20/2019 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Ways of Keeping Your Dental Bonding LongerGetting dental bonding can be an efficient and affordable way to temporarily treat dental issues. Whether you are dealing with a cracked tooth, a chip, a clean break (so long as it is a minor one), or something in between, bonding can be used in certain circumstances, and it can be much more affordable than some other long-term solutions.

Having said that, dental bonding is typically not intended to be a permanent fix for your teeth. It simply does not hold up as well to the daily rigors of eating, drinking, and the other activities you use your teeth for. Still, there are a few things you can do to help keep the dental bonding in place longer, and by following these tips you can help maximize the life of your dental bonding.

Watch What You Eat
You already know that eating foods high in sugar is a bad idea for your teeth. But it can damage your dental bonding, as well. Limit your intake of candy, soda, and other foods and beverages with excess sugar in them. If you do enjoy these foods and drinks, at least take a few moments to rinse out your mouth once you have finished.

Wear a Mouthguard at Night

One of the biggest things you can do to protect not only your dental bonding, but the rest of your teeth as well, wearing a mouthguard is a huge step forward in your dental protection regimen. If you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep—and a surprising number of people do—then a mouthguard can help prolong the life of your dental bonding (as well as your other teeth).

If you are not sure whether you grind or clench your teeth in your sleep, we can usually tell pretty easily. Feel free to reach out, and we'll be happy to discuss the matter with you.
