Dental Fillings FAQs

The lifespan of a dental filling can vary depending on the material used and your oral hygiene practices. On average, composite fillings last 5-7 years, while amalgam fillings can last 10-15 years or more.

To extend the life of your dental fillings, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Avoid chewing hard foods or ice to prevent damage to your fillings.

Common signs include tooth sensitivity, visible holes or dark spots on your teeth, and pain when eating or drinking something sweet, hot, or cold. If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment for an evaluation.

Yes, fillings can fail over time due to wear, decay around the filling, or cracking. If you notice changes in your filling, such as sensitivity, pain, or a visible crack, contact us for an assessment.

We use sedation to ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free during the filling procedure. You may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, but this typically subsides within a few days.
