I think I did something to mess up my dental bonding. I’m heart broken about it. I really loved them. I brushed with baking soda. Did I ruin them? They’re turning yellow and I’ve only had them three days. Can they be fixed?
Baking soda is quite abrassive and would have etched your dental implants allowing them to pick up stains. That’s where the yellowing is coming from. Your bonding is unprotected.
Don’t beat yourself up about this. The problem is your dentist didn’t actually prepare you for how to care for your newly bonded teeth. That’s on them. Because of how short a time span you’ve had them, your dentist shouldn’t object to redoing them for you.
My hope is that they didn’t use lower quality materials which makes it easier for them to wear down. After they’re redone, make sure you use Supersmile toothpaste to clean them. This is specifically designed to clean and protect cosmetic dental work.
If you use the right toothpaste and they still turn yellow, then you can know they’re using inferior materials. You’ll need to go to an expert cosmetic dentist in order to get your dental bonding done properly.
My suggestion, if that happens, is you see one of the recommended dentists on the mynewsmile.com website. They screen cosmetic dentists to make sure they have both technical skill and artistry to give you a gorgeous smile.
