Tooth bonding is done with a composite resin that cannot be whitened. Many people look to teeth bonding as an alternative to whitening procedures, particularly for stains caused by mineralization, age, or medications, as teeth whitening is often unable to remove these issues. While Fairfax cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban, cannot whiten teeth bonding, a reapplication of the resin can be used to cover stains that may occur over time. You can also take small steps to keep your teeth bonding white and brilliant for years to come.
How to Keep Teeth Bonding White
The first step to keeping your teeth bonding white is with a thorough at-home oral hygiene routine. Brush and floss your teeth twice a day to remove surface stains and help prevent decay. In addition to your home routine, biannual visits to our office for professional cleanings and examinations will help keep your teeth bonding polished and white for several years. These visits will also allow Dr. Marzban to determine if a touch up will be required.
In between office visits, refrain from activities that can stain your teeth. Minimizing your consumption of tea, coffee, and red wine, and refraining from smoking will help keep your teeth their whitest and brightest.
