Is Your Filling Permanent?
- Posted on: Sep 8 2015
A filling is a way for a dentist to repair a cavity. After the cavity is drilled out of the tooth, the filling replaces the empty space. There are several different filling options and your dentist will use his or her best judgment to decide which one is best for your tooth or teeth. While fillings are meant to be a permanent solution to your dental problem but permanent does not necessarily mean it will last forever.
As your teeth change, the filling may become lose and need to be replaced. Your filling may also fall out and need to be replaced. If you have question about how long your filling will last, talk to your dentist.
