A dental filling should last about 15 years before it needs to be replaced, but this can depend on many factors, such as how often you grind or clench your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a mixture of glass and plastic particles, meaning they wear down over time. Regular visits to your dentist are important to make sure your fillings are withstanding the test of time.
Most people experience sensitivity for a few weeks after getting a dental filling. You should avoid things that cause sensitivity during this time, like extremely cold water or ice cream. A pain reliever is normally not needed. If you still feel sensitivity after two to four weeks or if you are experiencing extremely sensitive teeth, consult your dentist.
