Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth fillings are made of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, they are matched to the color of your other teeth so they aren’t noticeable in your smile. They also cause fewer allergy issues than amalgam.

Which tooth fillings are safe?

Amalgam fillings contain a blend of metals, including mercury. While both the FDA and the American Dental Association say mercury in fillings is safe for most people, some research has linked mercury to adverse health effects. We feel it’s best to play it safe by using composite fillings. Since we can match composite to the color of your tooth, they also look more natural than metal fillings.

How long do tooth fillings last?

While no filling is designed to last a lifetime, you can expect to receive several years of trouble-free service from our composite resin fillings. On average, they will last at least five years before needing replacement. Some patients will get longer life out of their fillings – as many as 10 years with no problems, depending on your oral care habits and the type of foods you eat.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Back Bay Family Dentistry will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and is comfortable. We’ll first use a local anesthetic to ensure that the area around the tooth is completely numb. We also offer relaxing forms of sedation if you need a little extra help getting comfortable.
