Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Fillings

Why should I choose composite dental fillings over metal fillings?

The obvious answer is the appearance. White composite fillings will not compromise your smile and because they are tooth coloured they’re virtually undetectable. Another reason to choose them is that less of the healthy tooth structure needs to be removed, making them a fairly conservative restoration.

What’s the process for composite tooth fillings?

Our Parkdale dentists first prepares the affected tooth. The composite is then layered into the cavity using a special light to harden each layer. Once the cavity is full, the composite is shaped to fit. The final part of the process is to polish the composite to help prevent staining and early wear. 

How long do composite fillings take?

It all depends on the size of the cavity or fracture, its location in the mouth, and how many fillings are necessary. Naturally the larger the cavity, the longer the procedure will take. Parkdale patients should allow up to an hour or more for a composite filling. 

How soon can I eat after a composite dental filling?

The good news is that patients can eat immediately after getting the procedure. However, we would recommend waiting until the effects of the anaesthetic have worn off as it can be quite difficult to eat when your lips and mouth are numb.

We wouldn’t want you to have to visit the emergency dentist because of accidentally biting your tongue or lips. Although composite fillings are strong, it’s best to avoid food that is hot, crunchy or hard until the numbing wears off.

How long do composite tooth fillings last in Parkdale?

Patients can expect their composite fillings to last up to 10 years but this can be longer with good oral care, a healthy diet, and regular dental check-ups.
