The duration of a dental shim can depend on various factors, such as, for example, the professional who carries out the work and even more importantly, on what material the shims are made of.
In general, the leggings made of resin usually last about 5 to 7 years approximately. If we use another slightly more resistant material such as ceramic, they can last from 10 to 15 years.
One of the most common materials for dental shims in the past (and even in the present) is amalgam, this material is an alloy that includes different metals such as: silver, zinc. Mercury, gold, among others.
Currently the materials used for this type of treatment are usually a little different since both resin and more resistant materials are used: ceramic.
