How do you determine a filling is necessary and what is the process?

 JJ Dental offers two convenient office locations in Fort Lauderdale & Lauderdale by the Sea.

In our office we don’t have the amalgam or the metal fillings. We use a composite and it’s made of quartz and resins and it’s basically a soft material when it’s placed and then it becomes just as rigid as your tooth structure. Scientists have tried to mimic all the properties of the tooth, so that means how they respond under compressive forces, how the tooth would respond under tensile forces, which would be pulling, so we attempt to mimic the tooth as closely as possible.

So the composite exhibits many of these properties that are very, very similar to the teeth and certainly we have the ability to match the shade of the teeth. So just because they’re different shades of composite. But a filling is really just needed in a couple cases. Sometimes the patients have an actual defect on the tooth where they don’t have any decay but they have a defect, like a void or an area that needs to be filled, so the composite is just bonded to the tooth in that area.

In other cases, and most commonly, if a patient has a cavity, it’s a matter of removing the cavity and preparing that cavity in certain, very specific dimensions and then placing the filling, In the area where the patient had the cavity. In other cases, fillings can be used in aesthetic cases, to bond to the front of teeth.

If the patient has a chipped tooth or maybe the patient wants bonded veneers, so not porcelain veneers but like chair-side veneers, so that’s a situation where there isn’t a lab that’s involved so it’s not a matter of taking an impression after the veneer preps have been prepared but it’s a matter of instantly leaving the office with teeth that look more aesthetic. And so we use composites to bond chips in the front teeth, or defects, or just to fill cavities.

And as far as postoperative care, it’s really just a matter of avoiding eating anything until the anesthesia wears off. And just treating the teeth as hopefully you always do, which is keeping up with your home care.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
