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.

Rating from 32 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

Rating from 7 Reviews My smile was poor due to discoloration and worn down appearance.Janet, US, 02 Sep 15

My teeth were a mess with a huge overbite that was causing my top crowns to continue popping off. I needed to open the bite or face a lifetime of problems. Plus, my existing crowns were worn, broken, and failing, and the overall appearance of my smile was poor due to discoloration and worn down appearance. So I chose to get a full mouth restoration. The clinic is excellent staffed by top-notch doctors with impeccable credentials. Mine was a fairly complex case, so a lot of dentists worked on me. My primary dentist was Dr. Marin. She was fabulous. The clinic is very modern, and they speak English flawlessly. Jose will pick you up at the airport and will take you to and from your appointments.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

Rating from 3 Reviews Absolutely recommended.Elena, Germany, 23 May 15

I went to Dr. Rubinstein because I had stronger tooth pain for a longer time. He suggested what to do and that really helped. The price was good and fair. He did what I needed and not too much. The clinic has very modern equipment and it is very clean and professional. The assistants are very friendly. Dr. Rubinstein is working really well. He explains a lot and replies to all the questions I had. I have been at other dentists in Costa Rica but I felt best with him. He offered some opportunities and suggested what to do. The work was done really quickly. Because I am travelling, Dr. Rubinstein offered to have my consultation at this time. And he did that. He replied to some questions I had and I am really happy about that. I can absolutely recommend him as a dentist.
