Frequently Asked Questions

What are modern fillings made of?

Modern fillings are made of a material called composite resin, which is a mixture of plastic and glass. Composite resin is strong and durable, and your dentist can match it to the colour of your teeth, so it’s virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth structure. Other traditional fillings are available, such as ceramic and gold; however, composite resin is the most popular choice these days.

What are the benefits of composite resin fillings?

There are several benefits to composite resin fillings, including:

  • They can be matched to the colour of your teeth, so they’re virtually invisible
  • They’re strong & durable, so they can last for many years with proper care
  • They’re less likely to cause cracking & other damage to your teeth
  • They can be used to repair small chips or cracks in your teeth

Because of these benefits, composite resin fillings are the most popular choice for both new and replacement fillings.

What is the process for getting a filling?

The process for getting a filling is relatively straightforward. First, your dentist will clean the tooth and remove any decay. They will then prepare the area for the filling material, which will be placed in the tooth and shaped to provide a natural-looking and comfortable fit. Once the filling is in place, your dentist will harden it with a special light. The whole process typically takes less than an hour to complete.

How can I tell if my filling needs replacing?

There are a few signs that may indicate that your filling needs to be replaced, including:

  • You can see or feel the filling material in your mouth
  • The filling is cracked or chipped
  • The filling has come loose from the tooth
  • You have pain or sensitivity in the tooth

If you’re experiencing any of these problems, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible. They will be able to assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.

Are silver (amalgam) fillings dangerous?

There is some controversy surrounding silver (amalgam) fillings, as they contain small amounts of mercury. However, there is no evidence to suggest that they are dangerous. In fact, they are still used in many dental practices around the world. If you’re worried about an existing silver filling, and whether you should have it removed, you can speak to your dentist. They will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
