How do you care for bonded teeth?

ANSWER

Bonded teeth don't need special care. Just follow good oral hygiene practices:

Because bonding material can chip, you shouldn't:

If you do notice any sharp edges on a bonded tooth, or if your tooth feels odd when you bite down, call your dentist.

  • Brush your teeth at least two times a day
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day
  • See your dentist for regular professional checkups and cleanings.
  • Bite your fingernails
  • Chew on pens, ice, or other hard food objects
  • Use your bonded teeth as an opener.
