  • 5 star review  I was looking for a dentist for a second opinion on a some dental issue I was having. I called Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care. Andrea was so empathetic and she told me that they believed in treating their patients like family. She set up an appointment for me right away. Dr. Adam tried to make me feel at home from the start. I didn't want to have a panoramic done because my insurance was not going to pay for that. He told me not to worry he wouldn't charge me but he needed it for his evaluation. He also took pictures of my teeth and took a lot of time explaining medically what the issues were. He was always kind and patient. I really appreciated that he regarded me as a collaborator in my dental care. He did some excellent work on my teeth that day. I would whole heartily recommend this practice to my friends and family with no hesitation.

  • 5 star review  My daughter was beside herself at having her wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Adam Zaher and his assistant Alma did a wonderful job. And very fast with the removal. This was not our first visit and will not be our last. They worked well with our insurance. The whole office is friendly and open and clean. The real plus is it's open on weekends. Thank you for doing a great job! See you in 6 months.

    5 star review  Thank you all for the warm, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere during my visit. I broke a molar, and the office was able to squeeze me in. Dr. Zaher is an amazing dentist, extremely patient, easy to talk to, takes the time to know his patients. He is passionate about his job, takes his time to explain things to you thoroughly in a way that you understand, readily and happily answers all questions, and is just so knowledgeable about his profession and it shows in his work. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience — very friendly staff. Thanks to the whole staff at Long View Family and Emergency Dental care from a grateful new patient.

They got me in promptly and I knew in that first visit what needed to be done. They're professional in every way and I highly recommend them. Do not hesitate if you need dental services.

    5 star review  Just had a wisdom tooth removed and they were so great!!! I felt no pain at all and the best part was that I didn’t have to wait longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room which was just long enough to fill out one piece of paper. I will be coming back here for sure for all my dental needs! Super friendly staff as well. Thank you!! -Lauren R.

    4 star review  Solid 3.5 -1.The doc was very busy and I felt like he was rushing when speaking with me. After the examination (solid $50 spent, no question here), he briefed me on his findings and essentially told me to decide what to do. I clarified some questions with one of his assistants - didn't sound professional, however, I got all of the questions answered. The visit was indeed efficient, but I would rather have a slow and methodical one-on-one process, without the doctor and assistants(I got to meet 4 different ladies haha) constantly dropping in and out of the room to see other patients. +1.Tooth extraction was seamless and painless. Took about 10 min. -1.Setting up a payment plan was also quite easy. However, I'm still baffled that it cost 670 dollars for 1 wisdom tooth extraction (local anesthesia shot), 2 fillings, and cleaning - and that is with my insurance plan! +0.5 They gave me a prescription discount card, so I spent $24 instead of another $50 at the pharmacy. -1. When I think about a dentist's office, I think of a very clean, tidy, pleasant space. This place wasn't in the cleanest or tidiest condition. I wonder if it is because this team works so much that they just don't have time for that. To summarize, I came seeking help with a bad toothache, and left feeling no teeth at all hahaha (anesthesia took 3 hours to wear off which was much faster than I thought it would be) On a serious note, it was a very punctual and efficient visit, but I feel like some of the professional aspect of dentistry was sacrificed for that efficiency.

  • 5 star review  Extremely friendly and understanding. I was in an unbearable amount of pain and they were very accepting to helping me in my time of need! I’m not in the best financial situation as well, and they made sure I got the work done I absolutely needed and were willing to work with me! I had no problem with scheduling my appointment that day with hardly any notice, finding the office (with hardly any wait once I got there,) them listening and examining to pin point the problem, getting the right pain meds, or getting back in touch after my visit. By far one of the best places to go to. The dental assistant needs a raise! She held my hand when I was in pain and talked me through everything as well as the Doctor himself. I got two molars and one wisdom out at the same time & my healing process has been one of the best by far for any dental work I’ve gotten done. Definitely recommend!!!

    5 star review  I had a wisdom tooth taken out the same day I called within an hour. The visit was quick and Dr. Zaher was actually really easy during the removal. I felt no pain at all and they really cared about where I could pick up my medication late in the evening. If you need dental work, I would highly recommend, especially with wisdom tooth removal.

  • 5 star review  I normally do not post reviews but Longview Family and Emergency Dental care deserves recognition for honesty and integrity. I went there for a 2nd opinion and ended up paying much- much less. I was misdiagnosed at the previous dentist. This is really one of the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was so nice, the place is very clean and I was very comfortable in a dentist office for the first time in a long time. Highly recommend!!

    5 star review  I cant say enough about how great Dr. Adam and his staff/clinic are. Angels among us for sure!! I broke a tooth while eating breakfast this past Sunday. I knew ER wasnt going to be able to help me due to the injury being dental, so I looked and found Dr. Adam. I called and was scheduled for a same day appointment within an hour of me calling. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family. Dr. Adam was awesome at explaining my case and making sure I understood what needed to be done. The staff do a great job of making sure you understand your cost before starting what you need. Dr. Adam went above and beyond to help me with EVERYTHING I needed, got my issue fixed and had me on my way in no time. He truly cares about his community and giving back in the best way he knows how. I told him I thought he was an angel for being there to help me on a Sunday. I got my emergency handled and found a new dentist all in the same visit. I'm beyond thankful for what he did for me and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his clinic to anyone needing a fantastic, caring, get-it-done when you need it, dentist. You wont be disappointed!! Thanks again Dr. Adam! see you again soon!

    5 star review  I had a toothache in a tooth that was part of a bridge. As the day went on Saturday the pain got worse. I called the emergency office and spoke to Anna. She said come right in. After X-ray , Dr Adam showed me the infection and the root canal that was not good. He discussed everything he was going to do. He knew I was stressed so he gave me several breaks to get myself a rest. It was a removal that was ,to me, a little tricky. Dr Adam did a great job. I will go back again to implants. I have confidence that all will go fine. The experience was a good one. Anna caked to check on me today. That shows that they care about their patients. Thank you both for making me feel at ease!!!

    5 star review  So, I'm a single mother who works business hours and it's nearly impossible for me to get an appointment anywhere for my daughter without taking off work. I finally found this office and they are open SUCH unexpected and convenient hours. I was able to get an appointment for my daughter and not miss work. They were kind and helpful with my daughter, who is not a fan of doctors in general. She left skipping out of the office and that NEVER happens. These people are great! These people have my business in the future, that's for sure.

    5 star review  I hate going to the dentist but this was the best experience I have had by far. The front desk staff was pleasant. Kiera assisted on the whole way through and was great to work with along with the other staff. Dr. Adam was professional, funny and made the whole process comfortable. I had an extraction and he was done before I could even think about it lol. 10/10 would recommend. This will be my dentist going forward!

What is a white dental filling?

 

A white dental filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture that is used to restore decayed or broken teeth. With the use of enamel and dentin bonding techniques, your teeth can be restored to perfection using white fillings. With these composite resins, your cavities can be repaired. They can also be used for cosmetic improvements to your smile by changing the color of your tooth or by changing the shape of your disfigured teeth.

 

Why do you need a white dental filling?

 

Traditionally, amalgam fillings have been used to help restore damaged teeth. While amalgam fillings can get the work done at a very affordable cost, there are disadvantages to its use. Most people don’t like the way it looks on their teeth since their color is much darker and it gets in the way of a pretty smile. But with a white dental filling, your smile is enhanced instead. And this is the reason why most people prefer white dental filling. With a white dental filling, your teeth get to feel and look natural.

 

White tooth filling can be a great solution for a tooth with a minor fracture or a small cavity. It can also rectify the problem of gaps in between your teeth or if you have a worn-out tooth.

 

Another common tooth problem is tooth decay or cavities. The main cause of a tooth cavity is the attack of plaque. If you don’t brush and floss your teeth regularly, then you can end up with tooth decay. If you don’t care about oral hygiene, then you are more susceptible to needing white filling.

 

How long does it take the dentist to apply white filling?

 

The time it takes to place white filling is generally longer compared to applying a metal filling. The reason for this is that composite fillings require the tooth to be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Today, more and more people are having white dental filling instead of amalgam or gold filing. And the reason could be because of the aesthetics. We live in a society where we have high regard for a white, bright smile and so people tend to want fillings that blends with the natural color of their teeth.

 

It usually only takes one session to apply the white dental filling. It may take the dentist at least 30 minutes to restore your teeth to health. However, it may take longer than this depending on the amount of decay on the affected teeth.

 

The procedure for filling teeth with a white tooth filling.

 

When filling the tooth with a white dental filling, the first step is to prepare the tooth. If you are suffering from tooth decay, then the decay has to be removed by the dentist first. If the decay is extensive such that it has touched other parts of the tooth, then the dentist will have to numb this part for the decay to be removed. Less drilling is required with white fillings. Your tooth is then cleaned and a primer applied to open the pores of the enamel and the dentin. Finally, a bonding agent is applied to the cavity so that it can support the white filling material.

 

After the preparation, the second part is placing the filling. The white filling material will then be placed by the dentist in the cavity and the tooth is shaped to look like a natural tooth. Then a strong curing light will be used so that the white composite resins will begin to harden. The dentist will then check your bite to make sure that it is perfect. The necessary adjustments will be done in case of an imperfect bite.

 

After filling the cavity with the white filling, the teeth will be smoothened and polished so that your teeth will look and feel natural. With white dental fillings, you can have your pretty smile back. While white dental fillings help restore your teeth from decay and fracture, in the process, it also enhances your smile. Now you are free from the unattractive amalgam fillings.

 

The benefits of white dental filling.

 

What is great about white dental fillings is that after the procedure, you will not see that your tooth has been under restoration. It is just perfect to look at. And since the filling is bonded directly to the enamel, you can expect something strong and resistant to wear. Most white fillings can last for more than five years. Today, the material used for filling has greatly advanced and so the results are more lasting than they used to be. Here are some other benefits of white dental filling.

 

*It can restore not only teeth cavities caused by decay but chipped, broken, and worn teeth, and it can close gaps between teeth.

*It may be used as a veneer over stained or discolored teeth.

*It takes less time to prepare and to treat.

*It can be combined with other dental treatments like crowns, inlays, and bridges.

*It does not contain mercury as amalgam fillings do so you don’t experience any health risks with white fillings.

*There is less post-treatment discomfort and sensitivity for patients compared to an amalgam filling.

*It is less prone to cracking and insulates the tooth from excessive temperature change.

*Since only affected areas of the tooth are removed, the healthy structure of the tooth is preserved.

 

Keeping your white filling healthy

 

Make sure that you exercise the most basic oral hygiene to keep your white dental filling look its best. Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss once a day. Refrain from eating sugary snacks and drinking sodas. See your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings. Use antibacterial mouthwash for extra protection against decay-causing bacteria. If you don’t want your white filling to be stained, then you should avoid smoking, drinking coffee, teas, and eating foods that can stain.
