Types of Dental Fillings

There are many types of dental fillings, which differ from each other in terms of the raw materials used in the manufacture of each type, and these raw materials differ in properties and characteristics, which is reflected in the filling and gives it the same characteristics. However, all the raw materials used in the manufacture of fillings should be characterized by hardness and strength so they can face pressures and changing conditions in the mouth and perform the functional tasks of the teeth that result in high pressure. These raw materials can vary between porcelain, silver, or gold and a mixture of other metals in addition to mercury, tin, copper, zinc, plastic, or glass and resin.
The type of filling suitable for each case is determined by the doctor after a visual examination of the patient’s mouth and also with X-rays, and it is possible for the doctor to consult with the patient to determine the type suitable for their financial capabilities, in addition to other factors that must be taken into account such as the location of the affected tooth and the required strength and cavity area, and the types of dental fillings are represented in the following points:


Gold fillings: These are fillings made of gold, and these fillings treat tooth decay problems and work on cleaning its cavity from decay material or any bacteria stuck on the cavity walls.

  • Advantages of gold fillings: These fillings are among the most solid and strong types, which gives them stability inside the cavity and withstands any changes and lasts many years in the patient’s mouth exceeding 15 years without rusting or damage. The color of these fillings is golden due to the gold material composed of them, although they are somewhat acceptable in shape, due to their different color from the natural teeth color and their high strength, they may be used in cases suffering from damage in the back teeth and molars.
  • Disadvantages of gold fillings: These fillings are made from pure gold, so their cost is somewhat high compared to other fillings. Some electrical vibrations are emitted by these fillings in the mouth due to their reaction with saliva and other fillings in the mouth.

Silver fillings: These are fillings made from silver material, and mercury may be added to them.

  • Advantages of silver fillings: Silver gives these fillings the stability they need, and their cost is simple, suitable for different segments of society.
  • Disadvantages of silver fillings: One of the most negative points that patients with silver fillings suffer from is the mismatch of their color and shape with the color and shape of natural teeth, making them suitable for the back area of the mouth and not preferred for use in front teeth and canines, and the color of these fillings changes over time, and
    these fillings require removing a large part of the tooth cavity to properly fix the fillings inside the cavity.
    Silver is affected by heat and cold, leading to its contraction and expansion, weakening its stability inside the tooth cavity and causing the filling itself to crack or break, and the mercury added to the silver is not safe at all considering a large number of patients who suffer from allergies towards it.

Glass fillings: These fillings suit children because they are the most fragile and weak, and these fillings are made of acrylic material added to them fluoride, which resists decay and works on cleaning the teeth, these materials are weak and do not last more than 3 years with the child.

Porcelain fillings: These are fillings made of ceramic, and give the teeth the hardness and strength that help them withstand the pressure of biting and chewing food and the friction of teeth when talking, making them last at least 15 years with the patient, and one of their most prominent disadvantages is their high cost.


Laser fillings: Also known as composite fillings or light-cured dental fillings, these fillings target the treatment of tooth decay or repair any cracks and fractures on their surface to protect them from damage. These fillings are among the latest fillings discovered at the end of the last century and came with a new idea, which is directing a light beam from the laser on the surface of the fillings and the teeth, which helps in their fusion with each other and prevents their fall over time and these fillings consist of resin and silica or quartz in addition to glass.

  • Advantages of laser fillings: These fillings offer many benefits to the patient, including improving the cosmetic appearance of the teeth due to their availability in many shades of colors similar to the natural teeth colors, their cost is simple compared to other fillings, easy to apply without the need to remove a part of the tooth cavity but only a thin layer in some cases, their high effectiveness in compensating for the damaged and broken parts of the teeth or closing the spaces and gaps between two front teeth, these fillings are closely linked with the teeth, giving them stability and strength over many years.
  • Disadvantages of laser fillings: One of the most prominent disadvantages is that they are not suitable for problems with the back teeth and molars and do not withstand the pressure occurring in the mouth, do not provide the same efficiency and stability in cases suffering from wide areas of decay inside the tooth cavity.
    It is possible for symptoms of nerve sensitivity towards the chemical materials forming the fillings to appear in cases where the fillings are installed close to it, and it is difficult to control these symptoms, and this technique requires regular follow-up with the doctor and adherence to cleaning session appointments after installing the filling to ensure continuous reassurance on the filling and quick solving of any problem it faces before any aggravations occur.

Does decay return after filling?

Yes, it is possible for decay to return after the filling process due to neglect of the teeth and not ensuring their daily cleaning, or accumulation of food residues in the small gaps between the teeth, giving a chance for bacteria to grow again.

Disadvantages of Laser Filling

We have previously mentioned the advantages of laser filling and its high effectiveness and efficiency in repairing different dental problems and correcting any deformities or defects within its structure. However, despite this, there are disadvantages that some patients complain about and have caused them inconvenience, which can be mentioned as follows:

  • Laser filling techniques do not suit cases suffering from damage or harm in the back teeth and molars because the filling might fall out, and many cracks may occur in their structure when exposed to the severe pressure happening on the back teeth and molars in the mouth as they are unable to bite and chew food.
  • They do not suit techniques for cases suffering from decay reaching deep into the tooth cavity and occupying a large part of its structure. These cases require removing a large part of the tooth cavity, causing the fillings to not stay stable inside and the laser’s inability to bond them together.
  • Signs of inflammation and nerve sensitivity of the damaged teeth may appear as a reaction to the raw materials used in manufacturing the fillings, with symptoms of sensitivity represented by swelling of the cheek or face, redness of the gums and surrounding tissues, and constant pain and discomfort.
  • These fillings have a high susceptibility to erosion or falling out over time.

Cost of Laser Dental Filling

Many factors determine the cost of laser dental filling, and these factors include both primary ones playing a decisive role in determining the cost and secondary ones affecting the cost but to a minor extent. These factors can be mentioned in the following points:

  • The degree of advancement or progress of the patient’s condition and medical history.
  • The number of damaged or affected teeth.
  • The location of the affected teeth in the mouth, as back teeth or molars require more procedures than front teeth.
  • The quality and efficiency of the raw materials used in making the different fillings.
  • The medical devices used in treatment.
  • The therapeutic techniques or methods used.
  • The sterilization and infection control methods followed.
  • The treating doctor’s expertise and professional experience.
  • The professionalism of the medical team assisting the doctor.
  • The location of the clinic or center and the living standard of families and residents in that area.

Based on all these factors mentioned in the following points, the cost of laser dental filling can range in different clinics and centers in Egypt between 350 Egyptian pounds and 450 Egyptian pounds.

Tips After Laser Filling

There are some instructions that the doctor communicates to the patient to adhere to in order to accelerate the healing after the laser filling procedure and prevent any allergic symptoms or risks. The advice varies as follows:

  1. Avoid cold and hot foods and beverages.
  2. Choose toothpaste suitable for sensitive teeth.
  3. Stick to soft foods and warm drinks.
  4. Take the medications and painkillers prescribed by the doctor.
