What are fillings?

Fillings or dental fillings are used to repair the damaged surfaces of teeth. The surface of teeth may be damaged by small fractures, damaged enamel or decay. It takes 25 to 90 minutes to place a filling in a tooth.

What different types of fillingsare there?

Dental fillings are made of gold, silver, mercury or amalgam, porcelain or ceramic, plastic, composite resin materials or a glass and acrylic mixture called glass inomer.

Is getting a filling painful?

Preparing the tooth to place a filling by removing the decayed portion using a dental drill should not be painful. Some patients find the preparation procedure uncomfortable and painful. The dentist will administer a local anaesthic to ensure that the patient does not feel pain during the procedure.

 

How long does recovery after fillings are placed take?

Patients may experience pain or sensitivity for a few weeks after a filling is placed. The area where the anaesthetic was injected will feel sore for a few days. The gums of the patient will also feel sore for a few days.

How do I care for my teeth after fillings are placed?

Patients should not eat for at least three hours till the anaesthesia wears off. They should not eat or drink anything that is too hot or too cold for a few days. They should avoid very hard food. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should follow correct dental hygiene and brush and floss their teeth regularly.

What are the alternatives to placing fillings?

Alternatives to dental fillings are dental crowns, inlays or onlays, or tooth remineralization.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 62 Reviews This was by far the best dental experience that I have ever had.Patrick, US, 26 Mar 16

I had five crowns, two implants, teeth whitening, and two fillings. He saved the tooth that was gonna cost me $3,300 in the US. It cost me 400 there, and he was incredibly nice. He also showed me his office, all of this computer labs, and how they cut the crowns out of the porcelain on the lab. Took me in his office and showed me his stereo and worked around my schedule. This was by far the best dental experience that I have ever had. It was my first trip to Costa Rica. I was recommended by my guy, Joe Artavia. I had implants, crowns, fillings, teeth whitening, and saved about $10,000 US. I had no pain, no problems. I will be going back again now that the posts are set. I rarely give reviews, but this man was incredible as a person and as a dentist.

Fantastic professional. Having very good knowledge and expertise. He is very good experienced though during talk maybe you will not feel it, after treatment, you will find him the best dentist. Easy access to his clinic from San Jose, Costa Rica. Use maps me, an offline map if don’t want to use Taxi or Uber and in this way. You will also get the information and knowledge about the city. I found this doctor the best and the price is good. I will highly recommend this doctor. He has very good services and standards are not less than the USA or Canadian. I am from Calgary, Canada and I think if you don’t have insurance for root canal treatment etc. this clinic is the best choice. Hygienically clean and up to the professional standards. Thanks, the doctor for all your professional treatment. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 37 Reviews I’ve found my courage and my dentistJody, BOCA RATON, 30 Apr 18

I grind my teeth at night when I’m sleeping. This has ruined my teeth, given me headaches and damaged the Dental work I’ve already had. If that’s not enough I’ve had a disastrous encounter with an endodontist that resulted in 2 surgeries, a root canal, 2 crowns and finally the loss of the tooth. The pain was so traumatic that I’m afraid of the dentist. Thank goodness my moment of courage occurred at Costa Rica Dental Services. After careful consideration, we (yes, I was included) determined I needed 2 root canals redone (because 2 different US dentists failed to notice roots with more than 1 nerve.) A broken tooth needed a root canal (that was the reason for the courage) and 3 implants - 1 from the endodontist nightmare and 2 from root canals that couldn’t be completed without agony. (I’m wondering how many other teeth I had with 2 nerves per root.) Before I left I had a largely failed filling replaced and small worn places on my front teeth filled so I could smile. Up to this point, any exceptional dentist could have done the work I had. I have never met an exceptional dentist before but I’m sure they exist somewhere other than this office. In addition to bonding (my word not the dentists), my front teeth to fill the worn off enamel Dr. Gadea built up a tooth that was pushed behind the other front tooth and blended the effect so my crooked teeth look straight. Not straighter - straight! He also used that same bonding to make a rough line on the bottom of my teeth smooth and even. When I gasped and stared at him unable to speak from shock at my suddenly improved appearance he said,”This is what I love to do. When I get started I just have to make the teeth look better.” I have to go back to have the crowns when the implants have healed but I’ve found my courage and my dentist. I would dream of going anywhere else. In a scale of 1 to 10, Costa Rica Dental Services is a 20.

Fillings  
The fillings is a process that eliminates decays from affected teeth and replaces the lost structure with healing material that will recover the original shape and functions. The white fillings are made with a special resin that can be as the same color of the tooth so nobody knows the difference; this is a huge advantage because it looks much better than black fillings or amalgams. The new resins are free of mercury, which solves another big problem present in traditional amalgams

Cleo Dental

Avenida 14, Cale 42, 100 S McDonalds, Sabana Sur, 1007
Rating from 1 Review The best of the bestAngela, Costa Rica, 24 Jun 17

I needed extensive work on my bottom teeth- 2 root canals, a bridge, 2 veneers, and caps. As well as, a gum scaling. The best of the best. Dr. Castro and his team are perfectionists, and gave me a level of care second to none. I've had similar work done in the U.S., for three times the price, dragged out over a period of years. My time in CR was limited, Dr. Castro and his team worked overtime on two separate nights, so I could leave CR with a beautiful smile. From the girls at the front desk to Dr. Castro and the rest of his team, professionalism at its finest. Thank you, CLEO Dental!
