We have placed tooth-colored restorations in your teeth. The resin material used is a plastic with small “filler” particles of glass-like material-the finest and most to date materials available today. These restorations will serve you well for several years. However, you should be aware of the following: Chewing: As with natural teeth, avoid chewing excessively hard foods on the restored teeth (hard candy, ice, bones, etc.) because extreme force can cause the resin material to be broken from the tooth – just as it can in a natural tooth. However, in the event that a breakage occurs, replacement of a restoration is not difficult. Continuing care: Visit us at regular six-month examination periods. Often problems that are developing around the restoration can be detected at an early stage and repaired easily. Waiting a longer time may require redoing the entire restoration. Preventive Procedure: To provide optimum longevity for your restorations and to prevent future dental decay and supporting tissue breakdown, please brush and floss after eating and before bedtime. We do recommend you swish vigorously with a fluoride mouthwash for at least 30 seconds daily. Please call us if notice any change in your tooth-colored restorations, or if you have any questions at all about them.
