|Whenever you receive a dental restoration, it is important to take care of your teeth and the restoration, so your smile always looks great. Fortunately, bonded teeth do not need special care. You only need to follow a program of good oral hygiene. The following information will give you further details about the care of bonded teeth.
Brush Your Teeth Twice Each Day
When you have bonded teeth, it may be because you wanted to fix a chip, gap, or cavity. The resin that is used in bonding looks like your natural teeth, so you can easily take care of the restoration and the resin material in the same manner. Brush your teeth twice daily, preferably in the morning, or after breakfast, and before you go to bed at night. Also, you should floss at least once a day and use an antiseptic mouthwash.
Schedule Regular Dental Visits Every Six Months
To supplement your at-home care, make sure you schedule dental visits with us every six months. Doing so is necessary to ensure that you bonding stays intact and your teeth always look their best. Scheduling a professional cleaning and exam twice a year keeps your teeth and gums in tip-top shape and prevents added dental expenses.
If you believe you could benefit from bonding, give us a call at your convenience Bonding takes care of a lot of dental defects. Besides cavities, people have their teeth bonded to close up gaps, reshape misshapen teeth, lengthen the look of teeth, and improve a not-quite-perfect bite.
The resin material is usually applied in lower-bite pressure spots, such as the front teeth. A special light or laser beam is used to harden the material. Again, we can improve the look of your smile through bonding. Arrange a consultation today to learn more about the process. Your dental insurance will probably cover the cost.
