Tooth Cement can last for years but is often replaced due to wear and tear. Silver amalgam lasts for 10-15 years. Composite resins could last for 5 years. The time frame depends on the pressure of chewing and the size of the cavity.
The composite filling could fall out If you bite too hard substances on a tooth. If saliva gets into the cavity when the cement is placed, it could disrupt the bonding process. This is why you need a good dentist to prevent composite fillings from falling out. The restoration could also come out if decay has developed underneath it. Very hard brushing and flossing can also result in the cement getting dislodged.
