Tartar on Bonding
Great question. My 1st response would be that the bonding needs to be highly polished. Smoother bonding is less susceptible to plaque sticking to it than if were not smooth. My 2nd response would be to use an electric toothbrush. I personally recommend a Sonicare, but any of the top brands would be better than using a manual toothbrush. Good luck!

Dear Grail720: I understand your concern, however unfortunately there is no Magic Bullet and there is no magic toothpaste brands that will let you build up less plaque. You should talk to your dentist about having those surfaces highly polished, that definitely helps since plaque sticks much more to roughened surfaces then to smooth ones. It is also far easier to clean a nice curved smooth surface with a toothbrush.Best,
