FAQs

How long do composite fillings last?

Due to the variety of benefits with a composite filling these have become the preferred choice when deciding what material to use. With the composite material being stronger and more durable, they should last longer than a metal silver filling.

However, as in most cases, it all depends on the individual and their level of oral hygiene. The correct procedure and proper after care will extend the life of your filling. If the fillings are cared for by regularly brushing and flossing, they should generally last longer. Other dependents are the size of the filling, the filling location and if there is any clenching or grinding of the teeth.

White (or tooth coloured) fillings are made from composite resin, which is a very strong and durable material. Because of their colour, composite fillings are much better looking than traditional metal fillings. We are also able to blend composite resin fillings with your existing teeth by matching the colour, texture and translucency, making them much less noticeable than metal fillings.

White fillings, which are made from a strong composite resin material are generally stronger than traditional silver fillings. For this reason, composite fillings should typically last longer than metal fillings. The longevity of your composite fillings will depend, however, on your oral hygiene as well as a number of other factors, including the location and size of the fillings, and whether or not you clench or grind your teeth.

An inlay or onlay is sometimes recommended in cases where half of the tooth surface has decayed, and when the tooth needs more than a filling. Inlays and onlays are available in either silver or the tooth coloured resin that is used for composite fillings.
