How Long Does a Composite Last if Properly Cared For?
Posted on 6/15/2019 by Dr. VanBrunt
When you have fillings, you're given two different types of fillings in the mouth depending on where the filling is located, the depth of the cavity and other factors. You can either get composite fillings or silver fillings. Some people request specific types of fillings based on different factors, such as having a cavity in the front of their mouth. They'd like a composite that can match the color of the rest of their teeth and doesn't stick out. The Length of a Composite FillingWhen you have a composite filling put in your mouth, then you might want to know how long the filling is going to last. Silver fillings last a longer time than composite because they are a stronger material that holds the tooth together for a longer period of time. The silver is a stronger material when it comes to the force that is placed on it during chewing. Silver is usually what is placed in the back of the mouth when a deep filling is needed back there. Composite fillings are not as strong, but they still last a good 10 to 15 years if they are taken care of properly. This means regular brushing and flossing in the area, no abrasive materials against the filling and a series of other issues.
