Exploring your filling options: amalgam and composite

At Jacobs Dental Group, we believe in helping our patients make informed decisions about their dental health. When it comes to dental fillings, there are various options available, each with its own unique benefits. We offer two of the most common types of dental fillings: amalgam and composite.

R

Amalgam

This type of filling is made of a mix of metals, making this a strong and durable option. Amalgam fillings are often used for back teeth.

Composite

Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored resin material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. They’re a popular choice for front teeth or other visible areas, as they provide a natural-looking appearance.

We’ll help you determine which option is best for your individual needs. We use the latest techniques and technology to provide comfortable and long-lasting results, regardless of which type of filling you choose. Trust us to help you make an informed decision about your dental health.

Maintaining a healthy smile: regular checkups and dental fillings

Regular dental checkups and fillings are essential for maintaining good oral health. These checkups help detect and prevent dental issues, including gum disease and oral cancer. If a cavity is found, we may recommend a filling to prevent further damage and restore the tooth’s function.

By visiting us regularly, you can ensure that any dental problems are addressed promptly before they worsen and cause more serious issues. We provide comprehensive dental care to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile.

Dental Fillings FAQs

What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings are materials used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. 

Do dental fillings cause discomfort?

Before the treatment, we’ll use a numbing agent to relax the area around the affected tooth. You may experience sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but this should subside within a few days. Dental fillings are a safe and effective way to restore the function and appearance of your teeth while minimizing irritation.

How long do dental fillings last?

The lifespan of dental fillings depends on several factors, including the type of filling material used, the size of the filling, and the location of the filling in the mouth. On average, composite fillings last about 5-7 years, while amalgam fillings can last up to 10-15 years.

Can I eat and drink normally after getting a filling?

It’s generally safe to eat and drink normally after getting a dental filling, although we recommend avoiding hot or cold foods and drinks for a few hours after the procedure.
