Frequently Asked Questions
A standard filling procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour. The duration may vary depending on the extent of the decay and the number of fillings required.
We use local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort during the procedure. You might experience mild sensitivity or soreness after the anaesthesia wears off, which usually subsides within a few days.
Common signs that you may need a filling include toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold, and visible holes or dark spots on your teeth. Regular dental check-ups can help identify cavities early, often before they cause symptoms.
The longevity of dental fillings can depend on the material used and your oral hygiene practices. Composite fillings typically last 5-7 years, while amalgam fillings can last 10-15 years or longer with proper care.
We usually recommend waiting until the anaesthesia has worn off to avoid biting your cheek or tongue. Try to avoid hard, chewy, or sticky foods for a few days, especially if you’re experiencing sensitivity.
Absolutely. Fillings that are worn, cracked, or have fallen out may need to be replaced. Your dentist will remove the old filling, clean the tooth, and place a new filling to restore the tooth.
