What should I pay attention to after Aesthetic Filling Treatment?

The care of bonded teeth is no different from the care of normal teeth. Just like our teeth, it is very important to brush bonded teeth regularly and use dental floss every day. To minimize stain formation, it is necessary to stay away from colored foods and drinks as much as possible, especially in the first 48 hours.

Composite filling is not as strong as natural teeth. For this reason, you should not break hard objects (such as hazelnuts, peanuts) with your restored tooth. You also need to give up habits such as nail biting and pencil biting. Regular care of the teeth and regular check-ups by the dentist will prolong the life of the treatment. For this reason, you should not neglect your routine oral care and routine medical check-ups. During these checks, your composite fillings may also need to be polished again.
