Dental Fillings
Treatment :

A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Filling materials, which include composite, porcelain and silver amalgam, may be used to even out tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing.

Enamel loss is a common component of tooth decay, and may result in tooth sensitivity. In many cases, sensitivity caused by enamel loss will be significantly improved or completely eliminated once an appropriate dental filling material is placed. But in some cases, depending on the extent of tooth decay or damage, the affected tooth may require additional or alternative procedures, including:

  • Dental Crowns: Teeth requiring more support than offered by a traditional filling may require a dental crown.
  • Dental Implants and Dental Bridges: Irreparable tooth damage requiring tooth extraction may require an implant or bridge.
  • Root Canals (perhaps along with antibiotic treatment): Infected, abscessed or nerve damaged teeth may require a root canal procedure.

What are the Different Dental Filling Types?

There are several different types of dental fillings and the dentist will discuss which is best for you depending on the location of the restoration in your mouth, the extent of the repair, whether you have any allergies, and your budget.

Amalgam Fillings:
Amalgam (or silver) fillings combine silver, copper, tin and mercury to create a strong and stable filling material. It is durable, easy to use, highly resistant to wear and relatively inexpensive compared with other materials. Amalgam fillings are recommended for restoring teeth further back in the mouth and out of sight due to their dark colour.

Composite Fillings:
Composite fillings are made up of acrylic resin and finely ground, glasslike particles. This produces the most natural appearance for your restoration. Composite fillings provide durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-sized restorations that withstand moderate chewing pressure. These fillings don’t last as long as other types as they are more prone to wearing over time.

Glass Ionomer Fillings:
Glass ionomer fillings are tooth-coloured and easily bond with tooth tissue. They slowly release a fluoride over time to help prevent decay under and around the filling. These look natural, as they can easily be made to suit your tooth colour, but they are not recommended for loadbearing teeth as they can wear easily.

Gold Inlays & Onlays:
Gold fillings are custom made in a laboratory before being cemented into place. They work well with gum tissues and can last more than 20 years if taken care of. Gold is considered the best filling material, but it is often the most expensive option.

Porcelain Inlays:
Porcelain fillings have a similar cost to gold and are also produced in a lab before being bonded to the tooth. They are a popular choice due to their ability to be matched to the colour of the natural tooth and their stain resistance.

How Long Does a Filling Take?

Each filling takes approximately 15 minutes from beginning to completion, depending on how long it takes for your anaesthesia to take effect.

How Long are Tooth Fillings Supposed to Last?

The life of your filling is dependent on the material used, the restoration location in your mouth and how well it is looked after. Composite, glass ionomer and porcelain fillings are expected to last up to 5 years, amalgam fillings can last up to 15 years, and gold fillings can last over 20 years.

How Long a Tooth Hurt After a Filling?

Sensitivity in your restored tooth is expected for approximately a week or two. Your dentist may prescribe you some painkillers and antibiotics to avoid infection. Otherwise, over-the-counter painkillers can help to manage the pain. Ongoing pain after two weeks is rare and it is recommended that you seek advice from your dentist should this occur.
