Bonded teeth do not require special care. Bonded teeth can become discolored by stains just like your teeth, so you want to care for them as carefully as you care for your smile!

Avoid biting into hard surfaces like hard foods, candy ice, fingernails, and other hard items which can weaken the bonding.
