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.

The dentist was very capable and his work was excellentJeff, US, 16 06 23

I had implants done. My teeth were in very poor condition. The cost in the States was very high and I had heard Costa Rica had exceptional dental care at an affordable cost. They did not disappoint. The cost was 1/3 of the cost in the US, including travel and hotel. More important was the quality work and personal service! The dentist was very capable and his work was excellent. My host, Gabriel, was exceptional. Any need I had he was there. That included find medicine for my mother/care giver when she discovered she left her blood pressure meds at home. He even arranged a sight seeing tour for us. I would do it again without hesitation and I highly recommend Clear Choice Costa Rica.

The procedure has been life changingShane, US, 08 07 22

I have had my All-On-4 for a YEAR as of today! I waited to do the review because something as major/expensive / life-changing as an ALL-ON-4 isn't something that can honestly be reviewed after just a few days. I was born with Enamel Hypoplasia; that is, my adult teeth didn't have any enamel. I was told when I was a teenager that I would be wearing dentures by the time I was 25. I decided to do my best to take care of what I had - I brushed after every meal, I flossed, etc. My teeth lasted until I was 56! I tried several times to get my teeth fixed in the US (starting in 1989) and the price / procedure kept changing including the first time I started in 1989 and I had already paid the dentist over $5k (in 1989 $). Any how, I visited a few more dentists up here in Texas throughout the years and never got a good feeling for they were going to do for me (price was all the way to $100k with a WHOLE year of warranty). I first reached out to Goodness Dental in 2016 and they were very informative and had me send down a panoramic x-ray of my teeth. I was told that if my gums were in good shape (they are), they recommended an ALL-ON-4 and it would take two trips to Costa Rica 6 months apart. Covid19 finally allowed me the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica in December of 2020 - they yanked all my TEETH!!! For the first couple of days, I was thinking WTF did I just do. They screwed by bottom temporaries in and gave me a set of removeable upper CLOWN teeth (I only wore them for the minimum recommended 1 hour a day as I couldn't talk/chew with them). My family and I travelled back to Costa Rica in June/July 2021 for the permanent teeth. They told me for most it would take a couple of months to get used to it - since I was used to having no teeth for the previous 6 months, it only took me a few days. The procedure has been life changing as I finally have teeth that are super sensitive to things like lemons and other acidic fruits, I can chew without shifting food around from side to side in my mouth, etc. The only thing I would ding Goodness Dental for it there has been no follow-up since I left to see how was I adjusting to my new teeth. Since I haven't had any issues, this hasn't been a big deal to me - but I know others who need the follow up.

They were extremely accommodating and responsiveVictoria, US, 06 07 22

I had only a few days left in Costa Rica but wanted to get a couple of replacement mouth guards. I used the WhatClinic site and found that Prisma Dental had good reviews and was located nearby. They were extremely accommodating and responsive. I was able to get two new mouth guards (ready within the hour!) that exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Prisma Dental

Great place, with great people, and the best dental work I’ve ever had doneAlex, US, 09 08 22

I have had extensive work done at this clinic, and I am extremely pleased with the results but also with the overall experience that I have had at the clinic. This is the most professional, knowledgeable, and talented team I have ever had the honor to meet. Based on my past work experience, I had the chance to visit over 60 dental offices in US alone. I must say, that none compared with the Cleo dental offices. Their equipment, rooms layout, gorgeous view of the mountains, that the customer can see from their dental chair, are just a few of the great things that made up for the great experience. The thing that amazed me the most was their knowledge of the mouth. I am quite challenging when it comes to local anesthetic, but Dr Castro, had figured it all out and managed to anesthetize me properly for the procedures. Their staff communication is stellar too, everyone was on the same page about me so I did not have to explain myself over and over, also, their approach to crowns and the execution of them is artistic and beautiful, I have never had more natural looking crowns, Dr Juliana is an absolute master of the implant craft. I got prepped for implants without any problems, and my areas healed properly in no time. There are not enough good things to say about them. A truly stellar group. I would not go anywhere else to take care of my teeth from now on, even if it involves flying and traveling to get to them. Great place, with great people, and the best dental work I’ve ever had done.
