Fillings in Bogotá

The Ultimate Guide to Fillings in Bogotá

Last fact-checked: 15 March 2020

Save money on your dental care when you’re on vacation in Colombia. Book through Dental Departures to get your dental fillings in Bogota at a quality-checked dental clinic for less than half the price you would pay in the US or Canada.

If you’ve already booked a vacation (or at least planning one) to Bogota, then you will already know all about its charms. Colombia’s capital city is experiencing a renaissance with new services and amenities springing up all over the city—from coffee shops to craft breweries and from art galleries to cool tours.

Many activities in Bogota are a little different from your average holiday itinerary—and that’s why it’s currently such a hot travel destination. Guided tours with locals can take you through Bogota’s colorful graffiti-lined streets, to the city’s best designer boutiques, into traditional Colombian shophouses or even along chocolate tasting routes. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the  subterranean Salt Cathedral in Zipaquira, a fully-functioning Catholic church.

Yes—we know it’ll be hard to drag yourself away from all these activities and things to see, but a filling will take less than an hour and put some additional coins in your pocket for leisure activities.

About Fillings

Fillings are restorative treatments to repair decayed teeth. After removing the tooth decay, the dentist applies a filling material in the ensuing cavity. Fillings are made from various materials, such as amalgam, gold, composite resin, and porcelain. Each has its pros and cons, which your dentist will discuss to find the best solution for you.

Although amalgam is the most durable, it’s more noticeable than other materials. Plus, the mercury content in this material is also quite controversial, with some patients replacing their original amalgam fillings with different materials. There are conflicting opinions as to how safe it is to have mercury in your mouth. If you are having unexplained symptoms that are bothering you then you want to consider the removal of amalgam fillings, after consutling with a dental specialist about the pros and cons, and the risks.

With regard to alternative filling materials, gold is long-lasting and custom-made in the laboratory. Not surprisingly though, it does come with a hefty price tag. Composite resin matches the natural color of your teeth but is more prone to fractures. Porcelain is more natural looking and resistant to stains but not as strong as amalgam. The dentist will talk you through the options most suitable for your particular circumstances, although most people opt for composite or porcelain.

What is the Procedure for Fillings?

The dentist begins the procedure by giving you local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. After removing the decay, the cavity will be cleaned before the filling material is applied. Some clinics use air abrasion or laser technology, which is more comfortable for patients, especially those with dental anxiety. Once the filling material has hardened (it only takes a matter of minutes), the dentist will begin to smooth and shape the filling. You may be asked to bite down on a piece of colored paper so the dentist can see where the bite marks are on the paper from the new filling in relation to your other teeth. If only the newly-filled tooth is making an impression on the paper, this indicates it will need filing down some more. Once the dentist is happy and the filling feels comfortable, the newly-filled tooth will be polished to complete the procedure.

What’s the Quality of Dental Care Like in Bogota?

The dental facilities in Bogota for dental tourists tend to be modern and well-maintained with skilled dentists and trained staff providing efficient services. Using advanced technologies, they deliver effective solutions to different types of dental issues, like tooth decay and gum problems.

However, it’s always wise to do your own research to find a reliable dentist. All the clinics listed with on Dental Departures have been pre-checked by us, so you can book an appointment with complete confidence knowing that they are reliable and trustworthy.

We run a number of checks that include searching legal/criminal records and onsite visits. We confirm qualifications and professional memberships of the dentists and collect real patient reviews that are published on our site.
