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.

My teeth look natural (not extremely white) which is what I asked the doctor forAndrea, US, 11 09 21

Traveling to Costa Rica from Los Angeles for dental work for the first time was absolutely terrifying. But after deep comparisons and research, Dr. Gadea’s dental work looked the best and the most natural by far. I’ve been dealing with my gummy smile all my life, and had misshaped and miscoloured teeth from some bad bonding work that I had gotten about 15 years ago. I was determined to get this fixed, but knew that I could not afford a local dentist. I contacted Gadea’s office and began coordinating with his staff immediately. It took me months to finally book my trip, but I’ve got to tell you this was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. The procedure was painless, there was some swelling to my face, but it subsided after a few days. After getting my dental work (8 veneers, and lessened my gummy smile, straighten a few teeth)I can smile naturally without covering it. I’m so much more confident than before. My teeth look natural (not extremely white) which is what I asked the doctor for… I was afraid I would have some big drastic change to my mouth and people would know immediately that I had work done. I didn’t want to look like someone else. After I returned to the US, my friends never brought up my teeth. They just say wow you look so good. Because I still look like myself, just a better version. If I would have gotten this work here in LA, there is no way that I would be able to afford it. And I’m certain that it would not look as good. I highly recommend Dr. Gadea’s office to you if you’re reading this…

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

Dental Implants  
Dental implants are artificial roots that can be place in the maxilla or in the mandible creating a solid base where it can be perform either individual or a whole mouth restoration. The implants will allow you to chew, smile and talk secure and comfortable. This is the most natural, new and healthy way to replace lost teeth.The dental implants are made of titanium because it doesn’t reject tissues and fits perfectly with the bone. At Costa Rica Dental Services we use only the best implants on the market such as ZIMMER, 3i or MIS.

You made me feel as though I were familyDaniel, US, 22 09 21

I've visited various dental clinics in Florida to review what would be the best procedure for my situation. A friend recommended that I should visit Costa Rica Dental Lab. I had full upper and lower dental implants. The reason I choose this clinic is that they have the best overall price. Their team of professionals were very compassionate and friendly. Everyone worked as a team player to make me feel as though I was the most important person in the room. Thank you all for the sincere kindness and the effortless care you demonstrated towards me. You made me feel as though I were family. Thanks to everyone at the Costa Rica Dental Lab for a job very well done.

The clinic is state of the art and the treatment is excellentAnonymous, SOMERSET, 23 07 17

I have traveled several times from North America to Dr. Garita's clinic. His staff is courteous and professional. They have always been very accommodating with scheduling and never any surprises with the bill. I have been treated over the last two years by Drs. Garita, Alvarado and Lee. I would highly recommend all three. The clinic is state of the art and the treatment is excellent. I am currently planning a trip to get a dozen veneers placed.
