Dr. Adam Zaher not only removed my wife’s wisdom tooth painlessly, but he came in on his own, literally by himself, to perform paper work xrays I mean everything. The whole procedure didn’t last any longer than two hours, and he was so polite and professional! The hours are incredibly convenient. Also he chose The Legend of Korra to play for our son on Netflix. 10/10

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.

This was the most amazing place and people!! My husband was in extreme pain from a wisdom tooth. They got us in on a Saturday at 7:00 pm and took great care of everything. Plus they x-rayed my son, cleaned his teeth, filled multiple teeth, added sealants to a few. All for a great price. We will be back in 2 weeks for more work. The dentist, assistant and office staff are all amazing! We found our dental home!

Absolutely love this dentist! I took my boyfriend in for tooth pain and Dr Adam was amazing talking him through his tooth extraction making him laugh and did it quickly because he knew he was scared! He was so nice we didn’t have insurance and he gave us a discount on the procedure and the medicine! Definitely recommend him and his crew!

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.

My experience has been the best ever!!!!!! So professional and so patient. The entire staff treats you with honesty and kindness. Dr. Zaher even played me a little Sam Smith to calm my nerves😊. They guided me through my journey with nothing with my best interest at ❤❤ This year is new journey for me and I'm going into it with a great new smile on my face😁😁😁😁😁.

Great experience with Dr. Zaher and Andrea! My father had to have all of his remaining teeth extracted in preparation for a complete set of dentures, and Dr. Zaher was efficient and pain-free—even with a whole mouth of teeth to extract. Both he and Andrea make their patients feel comfortable and welcome during stressful procedures and are more than willing to answer any questions concerning your care. If you need a dentist in Longview, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Zaher.

Dr Adam and his staff are so pleasant and kind! I would give them ten stars if I could. I had absolutely no pain or anxiety during my procedure. I was constantly asked how I was doing and I was well taken care of. Best dentist ever!

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!

Fast and professional. Clean office. Great hours. Attentive staff. Immediate service for a decent price. Had a painless wisdom tooth extraction done the same day calling in. Dr. Adam made it seem easy while being very patient with my edginess during procedure. Truly skilled and kind guy. Felt like I was in the hands of an expert. Best place in East Texas to hit up for a dental emergency. They will help you asap.

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.
