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?

I'm very happy to be able to smile againBrittany, US, 03 08 19

My name is Brittany and I'm 37. I have had progressively bad teeth for the past 15 years. I kept having them fixed but they started getting very painful the last couple years. I saw several dentists in the states who recommended having them all pulled and getting dentures. I didn't like this suggestion at all and started searching for an alternative. That's when I came across Gabriel and Dental Pluss. After several months of us planning, we flew with our son to Costa Rica! I had 7 implants on the top and 9 root canals on the bottom along with four fillings. Everyone there was very kind and accommodating! They called in an anesthesiologist and a root canal specialist. They did an excellent job of keeping the procedures pain-free which was one of my main concerns. I loved being able to recover by the pool at the beautiful hotel! I'm very happy to be able to smile again and excited to continue my treatment in a couple of months! Thank you so much, Gabriel and everyone at Dental Pluss for all you did! We loved our experience and so glad God led us there!
