Why Cali? 

Colombia’s resurgence as a travel destination has seen an influx of visitors to cities like Cali.

As the third-largest city in Colombia, Cali is the place to head to if you love Salsa dancing. You simply can’t escape it here—the music can be heard everywhere with dancing in clubs, pubs and sometimes out on the streets. And beginners can find visitor-friendly classes available a small cost, or you can head to one of the legendary Salsa clubs that often provide free lessons at least once a week. For some inspiration, try checking out “Delirio”, a Cirque-du-Soleil-style show that combines circus acts with choreography (you will have to book well in advance before you arrive in Cali for this one).

Apart from Salsa, explore interesting neighborhoods, including bohemian San Antonio—‘Old Cali’ with its colonial houses and Granada, the city’s foodie paradise. It’s a great city to spend some time in and you’ll certainly find plenty to explore outside after your dental work, including golfing, hiking in the nearby Farallones de Cali National Park, or sailing along the Pacific Coast.

Are Dental Fillings a Good Procedure to Have as a Dental Tourist

Filings are ideal for a trip of any kind. Its reasonably quick procedure, therefore only taking up a short amount of your valuable vacation time with no downtime afterward. With today’s rising dental care costs around the world, why not take advantage of Cali’s dental services during your visit?

How Can Dental Fillings Help My Health?

Dental fillings are used to fill cavities in your tooth formed by decay caused by bacteria or trauma to the tooth. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that feeds off plaque, the sticky substance that coats teeth when saliva and food mix in your mouth. Toxins and corrosive acid are produced by the bacteria that wear down tooth enamel and cause gum disease. Both of these lead to eventual tooth loss, so it’s really important to fix these little problems before they become bigger (and more expensive) ones.

What Is the Procedure for a Filling?

The procedure typically takes only minutes to carry out. The dentist first administers a local anesthetic by injecting it into the gum around the tooth. After a few minutes, the area will become numb and the dentist will begin to take out the decayed area of the tooth using a drill. The resulting cavity will be cleaned and a filling made from the material you have agreed upon with your dentist will be placed and left to harden. After a few minutes, the dentist will shape, smooth and polish the filling until it feels comfortable to you.
