  • 5 star review  I am terrified every time I step foot in a dentist office. I have gone to the same dentist for years. I had an emergency and needed to be seen. I called this office and they had me scheduled for the SAME day. I told Andrea how nervous I was and she calmed me over the phone. When I arrived I almost immediately went into the patient room. I told Dr. Zaher how my regular dentist does things and told him how scared I was to try someone new. He assured me I was in good hands. I trusted him. He did exactly how my normal dentist did and went above and beyond with my treatment and care! He made me feel as comfortable as possible and I felt no pain! His staff was friendly and checked on me regularly. I would highly recommend this facility! They made me feel like welcomed and comfortable with their exceptional hospitality!

    5 star review  I woke up Sunday with extreme pain from my wisdom teeth and my gums! I was going to wait till Monday to go to a dentist because I was sure every dentist was going to be closed, but I was wrong. I was so happy when I saw that this office was open! I called to make an appointment and right away they got me in. Kierra the front desk receptionist was so sweet and helped me with all my questions, she was super friendly and outgoing! Overall, the whole staff made me feel welcome! One of the best dentist offices I’ve gone to! He took out my wisdom teeth, fillings, and did a cleaning all super quick and no pain whatsoever! Thank you for making me feel welcome!

  • 5 star review  I highly recommend Dr. Adam Zaher and his staff. They saw me on short notice on a Saturday night. I was very nervous about having my tooth pulled, however they went above and beyond to make me comfortable. The office is nice and extremely clean. And to top it off Andrea periodically checks up on me to make sure I am healing properly. This is definitely my new family dentist 😁😁😁

    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  I love this Dentist Office from the time I walked in to the time I left I felt comfortable and at ease. I needed some teeth pulled they both were giving me pain. Dr Adam Zaher was very friendly he walked me through the steps and made me feel very comfortable about getting my teeth pulled I was so nervous but he encouraged and let me know I was gonna do just fine and I was especially relaxed when he turned the music on. He is a great dentist and is really down to earth. Andrea she is really really sweet. We had a great conversation and she explained to me the steps on how to take care of my mouth after the extraction. I literally called her everyday after I left to ask questions again to make sure I was doing everything right and she had so much patience with me even after waking her up out her sleep at home she was there to answer me. To the new girl sorry I don't remember your name but she was so sweet to. I know you were nervous but you did great just stay encouraged everything will get better for you. I highly recommend this Dentist office the staff are just like family when you have questions or just need them to take a look or something needs to be pulled they will do it. This is a very professional and clean place to go and you will love the staff. You all know I will be back of course. My Dentist Family 5 stars isn't enough I give you all a 10 Thanks again.

If I can work up the courage to get the other wisdom teeth removed, he will definitely be the one to do it!! 😄

  • 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.

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.
