Dental Bonding Needs Special Care to Keep Looking Like New
Posted on 3/10/2019 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
If you have damaged a tooth, one easy (and affordable) solution is the use of dental bonding for a temporary or long term repair. Dental bonding isn't only used to repair teeth: it can also be used to fill unsightly gaps or improve the appearance of teeth that are heavily stained or otherwise discolored. Still, if you have dental bonding, you should be aware that it requires careful maintenance. It tends to show stains more easily than crowns or veneers. Here is more information on properly caring for your bonding to help keep it looking new. Avoiding Chips and CracksOne thing to remember about dental bonding is that it can chip or crack more easily than your natural teeth. You have almost certainly read or been told that you should not chew on ice because it can damage your teeth. This is even more true of dental bonding. In addition to avoiding ice, you should do your best to avoid chewing on other hard objects such as pens, your fingernails, or anything of this nature. This will help you keep the bonding from chipping. Avoiding Stains and DiscolorationsOf course, dental bonding—much like your natural teeth—can be stained over time. This is especially true if you smoke, drink red wine, or eat dark-colored foods. To this end, there are a few steps you should take to try to keep your bonding from becoming discolored. First, avoid using tobacco. Not only is this unhealthy, it is one of the worst things you can do in terms of staining your teeth. Also, if you do enjoy dark colored foods or drinks, immediately rinse out your mouth. Consider using a straw to drink coffee or red wine. Be sure to brush regularly, and use a good antiseptic mouthwash every day. Taking these simple steps will help keep the dental bonding looking new for as long as possible....
