Replacing Old Dental Fillings

Dental filling also called a “Dental Restoration” is intended to replace tooth structure lost to decay. Dental fillings may last many years; however, eventually all filling need to be replaced. Constant assault from eating and drinking, or stress from clenching or grinding, eventually may cause a dental filling to fail. Replacing old fillings is necessary for a healthy mouth.

Several factors influence the durability, longevity, performance and expense of dental filling. These factors include the components in the filling material: where and how the filling is placed; the chewing load that the tooth must bear; and the length and number of visits needed to prepare and adjust the restored tooth.
