Oral Cancer Screenings
Otherwise known as “white fillings,” resin composite fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds. When they were first developed, they weren’t strong enough to be used in back teeth. With technological advancements supported by numerous studies, these materials have proven strong enough to be used in back teeth. It's now known that resin-based composite fillings provide many advantages over other types of fillings, and are favored for a variety of reasons.
Benefits of Resin Composite Fillings (White Fillings):
The color of resin-based composite fillings match your natural tooth color, so they are more esthetically-pleasing and natural-looking
They are bonded to your tooth, which means that they can restore at least some of your tooth’s original fracture resistance once placed in the tooth (which is something non-bonded fillings can’t do)
They are more conservative than amalgam; this means you can preserve more of your natural tooth, leading to fewer issues in the long-run, including fractures, sensitivity, and unnecessary dental work
They are completely cured before you leave the office, so there’s no risk of fracture during a typical amalgam’s setting time
Being plastic, they are worse conductors than metal fillings, so they result in less sensitivity to heat or cold over time
They act more like your natural tooth, leading to fewer cracks and fractures (which often lead to more aggressive dental work, like a crown or root canal)
Dental implants are the standard of care for missing tooth replacement. We offer dental implants to restore your smile, from single implants to full arch restorations.
If you need to replace a tooth but don't know where to begin, Bliss Dental Clinic can help guide you through the dental implant process with personalized attention in a charming private practice. Dr. Mafa specializes in implant dentistry and can align you with the best options for tooth replacement in Collingdale. If you need quality dental implants, contact Bliss Dental Clinic today!
We provide our patients with a variety of denture materials to best fit their needs and achieve the best aesthetics. Dr. Mafa offers one-on-one consultations and offers a variety of prosthodontics services in an intimate office in the greater Philadelphia region.

Conventional Dentures from Bliss Dental Clinic
Conventional dentures are made for a patient’s mouth cavity once the teeth have been removed. The dentist first removes the patient’s teeth and then lets the patient’s gums heal after the operation. Once the gums have healed, the dentist will cast a mold over the patient’s oral cavity. This molding helps shape the dentures. After the molding is set, the dentures are created according to the mold so that they fit perfectly into the patient’s mouth.
The process for conventional dentures takes time, but it can be accomplished under the care of Dr. Mafa and the Bliss Dental Clinic team. After the teeth are removed during oral surgery, the patient waits about four weeks for the mold to be casted and another few weeks for the dentures to be ready. Overall, with conventional dentures, a patient waits roughly eight to twelve weeks without teeth, which is why many people opt for immediate dentures.
Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are placed in your mouth immediately following the extraction of your teeth (during the same visit as your teeth removal), so they serve as a bandage to control bleeding and protect gum tissue. Because more time is spent preparing them, immediate dentures cost more than conventional dentures.
Yet there are several advantages of immediate dentures that make them worth the cost.
Benefits of Immediate Dentures Include:
You won’t have to go out in public without teeth following your extractions and will have new teeth the same day.
You can immediately start adjusting your speech to accommodate the dentures and sound like yourself again.
It’s easier to duplicate the shape, color, and arrangement of your natural teeth while some are still present in your mouth.
You’ll be able to chew and eat comfortably relatively soon instead of spending months eating without teeth.
As you heal, your gums will shrink and the shape of your mouth will change for several months. It’s important to keep up with regular dental visits with Dr. Mafa during this time so we can make the necessary adjustments.
At Bliss Dental Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering Collingdale residents the best dentures and ensuring each patient's unique needs are met. Our team knows how to simplify the tooth removal process with personalized attention and gentle oral surgery, all offered in a charming, intimate setting that will make you feel comfortable before and after the operation. To help reduce costs, Dr. Mafa works offers the BLISS Neighborhood Plan, a discount dental program that can help you get the dental procedures you want at a price you can afford--even if you don't have insurance. If you need to replace teeth and are ready to explore your options for dentures, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Mafa today.
