How long do dental fillings last?
On average, dental fillings last for around 10 years, but they can potentially last quite a bit longer depending on several variables.
Are dental fillings painful?
You may feel a bit of discomfort during your dental filling, but the area will be numbed in advance to prevent significant pain.
Can I eat and drink normally after getting a filling?
We recommend that you wait at least two hours before eating or drinking anything after you get your dental filling.
How are dental fillings placed?
After the area is numbed, a small drill is used to remove the decayed part of the tooth. Then, the dental filling is carefully placed into the opening and secured using adhesives.
Can dental fillings cause sensitivity?
You may experience some sensitivity after getting a dental filling, but this feeling should be temporary.
