How long does a dental filling last?

Depending on how you care for your teeth, a tooth-colored composite filling can last for seven to fifteen years, even longer in some cases.

Composite fillings are a mixture of glass and resin particles that we customize to match your tooth. Composite bonds directly to your tooth, making it a strong and durable restoration for repairing the damage done by tooth decay.

Tooth-colored fillings also don't react to temperature changes in your mouth like metal fillings do, which means they won't pull away from your tooth and allow bacteria inside to cause decay again.

Our dentists can also use composite resin to repair minor cosmetic flaws like tooth size discrepancies or chipped teeth. This is an affordable and quick way to make small enhancements to your smile that can last for many years, just like your dental filling. 

If you have questions about dental fillings or other treatments, we encourage you to contact your dentist for more information about how we can help you reach your smile goals. Your cosmetic dentist in Phoenix, AZ, has helped hundreds of patients achieve their dream smiles with dental treatments tailored to their unique needs.
