Fillings & Cavities in Modesto

Smile More with Quality Tooth Restorations

A cavity can be an annoying and painful experience, but you might be surprised to learn that it’s also very common. According to the CDC, about 90% of adults have had at least one cavity in their lifetime. If you are one of those people, know that you are not alone — and there is a solution! At Dental Design Studio in Modesto, we offer dental fillings to all of our patients who may be experiencing pain from a cavity.

If you are unsure if you have a cavity or not, give us a call to schedule an appointment!

Disadvantages of Silver Fillings

Did you know that silver fillings consist of 50% mercury? Yikes.

The problem with this is that silver fillings can erode over time, leak, stain, and break your tooth. That’s why we only use composite fillings for all of our patients at Dental Design Studio.

Here are five reasons why composite fillings are better:

  1. They bond directly to the tooth and seal it off from bacteria.
  2. They strengthen the tooth and prevent further damage.
  3. They’re less likely to chip or fall off.
  4. They look like your natural teeth.
  5. They aren’t made from harmful materials.

The Fillings Process

Getting a dental filling can be daunting — especially if you’ve never had a filling before. Here’s what to expect when coming in for your dental filling with Dr. Pandher:

  • Digital X-Ray – We will take an x-ray of your tooth to see how much of it is infected.
  • Administer Anesthesia – We’ll numb the area around your tooth so that you don’t feel any discomfort.
  • Remove Decay – We will gently remove the decay from your tooth.
  • Add Filling & Shape – Lastly, we’ll put composite resin on your tooth and shape it so that it blends in naturally with the rest of your tooth.

Home Care Instructions

Here are some of our top home care instructions after a dental filling:

  • Make sure to keep watch until the anesthesia wears off. (You don’t bite your lip or tongue.)
  • Understand that sensitivity is normal.
  • Take Ibuprofen if needed.
  • Follow-up with our office if discomfort lasts.
