Tooth Fillings in Heartland, TX

If You’re Looking for Amalgam or Composite tooth fillings in Heartland, TX, Call Mirror Lake Dentistry - Heartland.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. At our Heartland, TX office you and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.

Composite fillings are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing tooth and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the tooth.

Common reasons for tooth fillings:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

Tooth Filling FAQ

How long do tooth fillings last?

It depends on the material they’re made from and other factors, such as how well you take care of your teeth. Fillings can last for many years if properly cared for with brushing, flossing and regular routine dental check ups with XRs. In general, though, tooth fillings tend to last 7-15 years.

How long does a tooth filling take?

A typical appointment for a single filling can be completed in an hour. If you’re having multiple fillings or your specific restoration is more complicated it can take longer. Consult with your dentist to get more direct timing for your procedure.

What are tooth fillings made of?

You can have tooth fillings made from different materials, such as gold, silver amalgam, porcelain, and tooth-colored composite resin. Gold cast and silver amalgam fillings are highly noticeable, while tooth-colored composite resin fillings typically blend in with your natural teeth. Porcelain fillings usually keep their coloring for a longer period of time than composite resin, though, since they’re more stain resistant.
