What You Can Expect
You can drink plain water immediately after your service, but you cannot eat for a minimum of 2 hours. At that time, you can resume eating, but must stick to soft foods for a full 24 hours. Only eating soft foods in these first 24 hours will ensure that the bond between the gem and the natural tooth is secure.
