- Avoid eating or drinking anything that is bright or richly coloured (for at least the first 48-hours), including strawberries, blueberries, red wine and coffee
- Avoid food or drinks that are very hot (for at least the first 48-hours)
- Do not bite your nails
- Avoid grinding your teeth. We know this might happen while you sleep, so we offer mouth guards with some of our composite bonding treatments; please ask your Treatment Advisor for more information
- Avoid directly chewing with your front teeth when you are eating foods such as carrots, apples, meat which may have bones or grit in it, hard bread rolls or anything else which requires a tough chew
You should also make sure you are following great oral hygiene practices, as this will prolong the results. Great oral hygiene practices include brushing your teeth a minimum of two times daily and using dental floss and mouthwash daily. You should also continue to see your dentist for your regularly scheduled check ups to ensure any issues are found as early as possible.
During your consultation we’ll discuss habits that could cause damage to your composite bonding, like biting nails and teeth grinding to spot and prevent them early.
