Your friendly, local Queanbeyan dentist.


Aftercare instructions for dental bonding or composite veneers include:

  1. Avoid hard, sticky, or crunchy foods for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure. This will prevent damage to the bonding or veneers.
  2. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching the bonding or veneers.
  3. Avoid biting your nails or chewing on pencils or other objects, as this can damage the bonding or veneers.
  4. Avoid staining agents such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products. If you do consume these items, rinse your mouth with water immediately afterward.
  5. Schedule regular dental checkups every six months to ensure that the bonding or veneers are in good condition and to maintain overall dental health.
  6. If you experience any pain or discomfort after the procedure, contact your dentist immediately.
  7. If your bonding or veneers become damaged or dislodged, contact your dentist as soon as possible to have them repaired.
  8. Consider wearing a mouthguard while playing sports or engaging in other physical activities to protect your bonding or veneers from damage.

By following these aftercare instructions, you can help ensure that your dental bonding or composite veneers last as long as possible and continue to look great.
