Types of

Dental Fillings

Composite fillings

These fillings match your natural teeth, providing a natural and attractive solution. Composite fillings are ideal for visible areas, as they seamlessly blend in.

Amalgam fillings

Durable and suitable for strong teeth, amalgam fillings are made from a mix of metals. Their silver colour makes them more noticeable compared to composite fillings.

Porcelain fillings (inlays/onlays)

Custom-made in a dental lab for larger restorations, porcelain fillings are both durable and natural-looking. They work well for both front and back teeth.

Frequently asked questions - dental fillings

How long does a dental filling procedure take?

The duration of a dental filling procedure depends on factors such as the size and location of the cavity. In general, a single filling can often be completed in about 20 to 60 minutes.

Is a dental filling painful?

Local anaesthesia is typically used during the dental filling procedure to numb the area, ensuring minimal discomfort. After the procedure, any lingering numbness usually wears off within a few hours.

Can dental fillings be replaced?

Yes, dental fillings can be replaced if they wear down, become damaged, or if there are new developments like decay around the filling. Regular dental check-ups help identify such issues, and your dentist can recommend appropriate actions.

Can I eat and drink normally after getting a dental filling?

In most cases, you can resume normal eating and drinking shortly after getting a dental filling. However, it's advisable to avoid extremely hot or cold items until any numbness from the anaesthesia has completely worn off.

Can I get a dental filling if I am pregnant?

Dental fillings can be done during pregnancy, especially if there's a risk of decay progression. However, it's advisable to inform your dentist about your pregnancy, and they will take necessary precautions to ensure your safety and that of the baby.
