Tooth fillings: Yes these can easily be re-done. Not a problem. No filling lasts forever.

Yes: Yes, restorative fillings can be redone. The old filling is drilled out and new one is placed. In some cases, the existing filling, specifically composite fillings, if fractured can be repaired instead of being redone.
