Dental Fillings: Weighing the Pros and Cons

Considering fillings? The information below will help you understand the cost and maintenance needs associated with each type of filling we offer. In addition to the following pros and cons, please also remember that each type of filling may require re-treatment or re-application in the years following your initial treatment. Fillings may also cause tooth sensitivity.

  • Durability–Looks and strength don’t always go hand in hand when it comes to fillings. More obvious-looking fillings can last up to ten years, while those that blend with teeth can last up to five years.
  • Cost–Filling material and procedure costs vary, so be sure to inquire with us to make sure you know the fees involved with the type of filling you choose.
  • Appearance–Fillings also vary in their aesthetic value because some types blend with the color of the teeth more seamlessly than others.
