Oracle only stores timestamp data (datatype DATE) down to seconds. If you wanted to store it to a finer resolution, you'd have to add your own millisecond column. Date arithmetic would be a problem though.

DECLARE
timing PLS_INTEGER; -- more efficient than integer!
BEGIN
timing := DBMS_UTILITY.get_time;
--DO something...
DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line ('Delta = ' || TO_CHAR (DBMS_UTILITY.get_time - timing));
END;
