Dental Filling is a treatment where dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth that become small holes and then “fill” the area on the tooth where the decayed material once lived. Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding.


There are various signs and symptoms where fillings can be required. The symptoms could be as below:

  • A hole in your tooth or cavities in teeth or dark spot on the tooth.
  • Dental floss that keeps fraying when you floss between a particular set of teeth.
  • Chipped or broken tooth.
  • A rough or jagged feeling in the tooth when you run your tongue over it.


How Long Does A Dental Filling Last?

There are multiple types of fillings, made of different materials, with varying price points and cosmetic considerations. Some materials are more durable than others, but none are considered permanent. Both gold and amalgam fillings can last up to 20 years in the right circumstances.

Can Dental Filling Fall Off?

Yes, but the chances are rare.

What To Do If Your Fillings Come Out?

Visit your dentist as soon as your Dental Filling comes out.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Filling?

A filling treatment will generally take around 15-30 minutes to complete. If your cavity is large, however, or if you have multiple cavities, more time may be required.

Will My Tooth Feel Different After a Filling?

Your teeth may feel a little strange straight after the treatment, but within a day or two, they should go back to feeling and performing as normal.

What Materials Can Dental Fillings Be Made Out of?

Gold Cast Fillings, Silver Amalgam, Tooth Colored Composites, Ceramic and Glass.

Why is My Dentist Recommending a Temporary Filling?

A temporary filling may be used as a protective barrier while a patient waits for an indirect filling to be designed and cast. In case of doubtful tooth too, Doctor prefers to do temporary filling for 3-4 days then do permanent filling.

How Do I Take Care of My Dental Fillings?

The good news is that taking care of fillings is easy. You just have to keep up with your regular dental care routine. This means brushing and flossing twice a day, attending regular dental check-ups, and informing your dentist about any changes as soon as they appear. Over time, fillings do degrade and eventually need to be replaced.

What Will Happen after My Filling Is Finished?

It is very common for there to be an increased level of sensitivity immediately after a filling has been created. If you feel sensitivity for more than 3 days, then treatment plans may change.

Does the treatment hurt?

No, the treatment does not hurt. You may feel a little sensitivity while removing cavity.
