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 BondingFirst, 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.
