what is recovery from tooth bonding and contouring like?
Once your appointment has concluded, you should not consume staining foods and beverages (such as tea, coffee, and tobacco) for 48 hours. The composite resin can stain and chip so don’t bite down on hard objects, like ice, hard candy, pens, and fingernails, and brush your teeth right after eating. Teeth that have been bonded and contoured need to be cleaned just like natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. Professional dental cleanings at Sunshine Dental can help to polish away stains from the composite resin. With good care, bonding and contouring may last as long as ten years. At your dental exam, our team will help you determine if the cosmetic bonding and contouring procedure needs to be done again to maintain your appearance.
Dental bonding and contouring FAQs
How long do the results of dental bonding last?
Dental bonding and contouring can last many years if patients maintain good oral hygiene and have healthy teeth and gums. We recommend brushing and flossing daily in addition to coming back for a full dental examination and cleaning every six months. Patients can also avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods as well as any activity that can damage the teeth.
Is dental contouring painful?
The specialists at Sunshine Dental are trained to administer local anesthetics before most dental procedures. Depending on the extent of contouring, procedures can be extremely comfortable and not cause any pain at all. If you are concerned about pain, ask us about how we prepare for dental bonding and contouring to ensure that you are at ease before the procedure begins.
Does dental bonding look natural?
Yes, it does! Dental bonding is one of the most natural-looking cosmetic dental options available to our patients. This is because we take the time to match the color of your teeth with that of the dental materials.
