Dental fillings have changed over the last ten years, silver fillings were the main filling material. Silver fillings have held the test of time and are good for some dental situations. We still use amalgam in our office in pediatric teeth when requested. The white composite filling material is used most frequently in our office. Composite fillings are bonded into place and can last up to ten to fifteen years. Latest research shows that the average filling lasts about seven years. Mostly due to the large size of the fillings that are being placed. Dr. Holt will inform you if your tooth would be better treated with a crown instead of a large filling.
