Frequently asked questions to a Dentist York

What are white fillings?

White fillings may be referred to as ‘tooth coloured’ or ‘composite fillings’ by your dentist. Your dentist will advise you whether a white filling is appropriate for the tooth you need restoring. Usually, white fillings are placed at the front of the mouth and silver amalgam fillings are placed in back teeth.

What are amalgam fillings?

Amalgam fillings are silver in colour when first placed but tarnish with time. They are made from a mixture of silver, tin, mercury and copper.  

How long will a filling last?

It is impossible to say how long a filling will last as it depends on so many variables, such as-

  • What filling material was used?
  • How big was the filling?
  • How much of the tooth was left?
  • How difficult was the filling to place?
  • What forces the filling will undergo in your mouth?
  • How clean the mouth is kept
