How long do dental fillings last?

Dental fillings will last between 5 and 12 years, depending on the quality of the filling, the care the patient puts into their teeth, and the nature of the filling itself. Some fillings will last longer than others, depending on their location on the tooth and in the mouth. 

Keeping up with routine dental appointments will allow your dentist to monitor the health of the teeth and the fillings throughout the years and discuss any concerns they have about the filling with you. If they notice any issues with them, or you report issues of your own, like pain and discomfort, it may be time to get the filling replaced.

Taking Care of Your Fillings

Practicing excellent oral hygiene is essential. It may be that subpar dental care has played a role in the formation of the cavity.

There is no time like the present to learn to brush and floss correctly.

Wear appropriate mouth protection for sports and sleeping if you compete athletically or grind your teeth to avoid damage to the filling and tooth.
