It was around June last year when my daughter, Ishi, met with an accident at school and chipped her two front permanent teeth, which at that time had just grown. See image here of last year, while the below image was taken just before the procedure.
A year later, when she’s already ready for the procedure, we once again contacted and visited Dra. Maggie Santos of Oradent Oral Care Dental Clinic, located at Baraca, Subic, Zambales.
Before the actual procedure, Dra. Maggie made my daughter feel better as she was too nervous, and explained to us what’s actually going to happen during the whole procedure.
Above, Dra. Maggie was initially checking her teeth up, with Ate Cathy, with her is her very accommodating and friendly assistant.
Let us now go through the Cosmetics Dentistry Procedure, one by one.
Step 1. Drill and create a dovetail for retention of the filling.
Step 2. After the dovetail and application of the etch to roughen the tooth surface, next is to fill the chipped teeth using a composite material for cosmetics in A2 shade.
Products used were all imported from other countries.
It’s amazing how she can identify the color that matches with my daughter’s teeth using only this palette as her reference.
Step 3. Curing of the filled part of the teeth.
Step 4. Removing the excess filling and overhanging materials.
Step 5. Glazing the restored part of the teeth to make them look natural.

We are amazingly very happy with the results. No pain and complaints after that. In fact, she could eat normally as if nothing happened. She’s now picture-ready, any time of the day! Please click the below image for a more closer look.
Procedure done for my daughter is called COSMETICS DENTISTRY using composite cosmetics materials in A2 shade. Around Php3,000-Php5,000/tooth, depending on the damage of the teeth.
Dra. Maggie perfectly fits for kids who are afraid of dentists. She’s very well accommodating and explains everything thoroughly. She has been of service to our family since we moved to Subic, so that’s already been 4 years to be exact.
