Type of Dental Fillings

There are many different types of dental fillings, which depend on the condition of your tooth and on whether you are allergic to materials like silver, gold, or composite (which is a mixture of resin and porcelain).

Metal Filling

This filling is long-lasting. It’s comparatively inexpensive, but gold fillings are even more so. They can last from 10 to 15 years, while silver fillings usually last only a little longer.

Amalgam Filling

Amalgam fillings have been a great alternative to more expensive procedures for many years. Because they’re made of several metals combined, they’re durable and reliable.

Composite Filling

These filings are preferred by people who want their fillings to be less visible. They bond well with the tooth structure. They are suitable for front teeth but wear off over time if they’re used on back teeth.

Porcelain/Ceramic Filling

If you are the kind of person who takes how they look very seriously, then porcelain will be the right choice. It covers most of the tooth, so it can cover up larger cavities as well. Furthermore, this filling does not stain.

After Care For Dental Filling

  • You should wait until the effect of anesthesia wears off before consuming anything too hot or cold.
  • You might feel a bit of tenderness around your gums, but this should go away in a few days.
  • Avoid hard or sticky food for a few days
  • If you feel sensitivity in your teeth or if a filling falls out, visit your dentist as soon as possible.
  • To clean your teeth, you should brush them twice a day for 2 minutes each time.   You should also use mouthwash and floss every day.
