However, one of the overriding factors of choosing to have teeth fillings in Mexicaliis the cost. Patients can save as much as two-thirds on the equivalent treatment at home. This can add up to significant savings of hundreds of dollars if you need more than one filling, and is perhaps something to consider if you are thinking of replacing amalgam fillings for health reasons.

Furthermore, cheaper prices do not mean inferior quality, as many dentists use the same quality materials and brands that are available to dentists north of the border. 

How long do Dental Filling Treatments take in Mexicali?

One of the simplest dental procedures to have carried out, fillings are quick and easy to perform, and can be completed in less than half an hour.

The procedure involves removing the decayed areas from an affected tooth. The dentist will first numb the area with a local anesthetic before drilling out the decayed areas. After the cavity is cleaned it is then packed with filling material, which can be gold, resin, porcelain, composite or amalgam. The filling is adjusted to the correct shape and size once it has hardened.

The lifespan of dental fillings really depends on what filling material has been used. Porcelain are the longest-lasting at 15 years plus, whereas composite fillings are said to last between 5 and 7 years.
