Yes, there is a possibility of them needing to be redone after a year depending on how deep it was from the get go and your diet and hygiene. Nothing can give you a 100% seal, so there is always some micro leakage happening. If you do take a lot of acidic food/drink like sodas, carbs, etc., they can cause decay below the filling, too. If you don’t take care of your oral hygiene, then that would be an issue, too. It’s all dealing with bacteria. Sometimes it can just be genetics. So, do your part and visit your dentist regularly so these can be checked and keep smiling :)
is a good start. If that does not help, then there are things like breath Rx; that can be used after consulting your dentist.
Hope this helps :)
The yellow discoloration can most of the times be cleaned by the dentist. Smoking does cause major gum issues (of course with other systemic issues), so your regular dental visits are imperative for keeping your teeth white and gums healthy.
