What is the difference between a dental resin filling and a dental composite filling?
In the strictest sense of the term, Dental Resin fillings will refer solely to the methacrylate component of the filling material (eg. Bis Phenol GMA).
However, it is rare to see an entire filling composed entirely of the unfilled resin material.
In practical terms, almost all resin fillings are in fact composite fillings (sometimes called composite resin or resin composite fillings). These fillings are composed of filler particles to provide color, fluoresence, and wear resistance suspended in a resin matrix.
Hence, from a technical view point, resin fillings will be composed of only resin (normally methacrylate or similar), while a composite filling will be composite of filler particles, suspended in a resin matrix. In practical terms, there will really be no difference. When your doctor places a resin filling, or composite filling, you will be getting a composite resin filling.
A dental hygienist will keep your teeth and gums healthy to prevent possible infections. They also provide composite filling for your teeth when required.
The cost for a composite filling (Tooth Colored) for 1 Surface should be between $130 and $200.

Usually an insurer will apply a provision called LEAT--Least Expensive Alternative Treatment--to the payment of a composite filling that is placed on a molar or other tooth where the… Read More

The procedure is suppose to be a permanent type of procedure its suppose to last a life time but i also have read in studies the average life span and it shown in a study that dental amalgam filling lasts about 13 years and composite filling lasted about 8. So it really all depends.

What is downgrading I need a filling I prefer white but my insurance will downgrade to silver filling benefit?
The term "downgrading" is not commonly; what you are referring to is the dental insurance policy provision called "LEAT" or "Least Expensive Alternative Treatment." The "white" filling you refer to is a "composite" material which some studies have found may not the most durable--especially for the teeth in the back of your mouth that you use for chewing. Most insurance policies pay for "silver" which are amalgam fillings in back teeth which is the "Least… Read More
Nope! Only if you get a filling.
Yes in certain condition we can put a filling on another filling. In other cases we have to remove the old filling and put another one. But when there is too much filling on a rooth, it's better to put a dental crown.

If the filling is still present, it should be visible to the naked eye, or at least visible on a dental x-ray.

Is it dangerous if a dental filling that you have had for decades containing mercury amalgam falls out?
No. There is very little mercury in a filling. A white filling will have more shrinkage with time which will cause them to need to be replaced, long before a silver filling. But you should get the tooth fixed right away.
when you have a huge cavity that a regular filling probably will not be stable enough for that tooth or if you have a crack lines in the tooth or a huge filling already that is breaking down.
It all depends of how big your filling is located, of how rapidly your dentist works, and of where your tooth is located (front versus back tooth).

Dental hygienist is concerned about tooth care and prevention of gum disease, and tooth decay. The Dentist treats tooth disease and repairs tooth decay.
No, they are not. A dentist is someone who is trained and licensed to treat dental problems, such as filling cavities. A dental hygienist is someone who is trained and licensed in preventive dental services, such as: cleans your teeth and takes x-rays. They usually work in conjunction with a dentist.
A Doctor of Dental Surgery deals with oral surgeries, whereas, a Doctor of Medical Dentistry deals with preventive dental treatments. In the U.S. however the curriculum is basically the same and both doctors are trained similarly.
