Composite Dental Fillings

Fillings are often the best way to treat cavities. During the filling procedure, we will remove the damaged enamel and repair your tooth with a tooth-colored composite resin, restoring both your natural smile and bite.

At our office, we use composite (tooth-colored) dental fillings rather than metal (silver) fillings. Composite fillings provide better cosmetic results, since they can be matched with the natural color of your teeth. Additionally, composite fillings require the removal of less natural enamel, and bond very tightly to your teeth, which strengthens them and ensures a long lifespan for your filling.

Periodontal Care

If you are experiencing issues like receding gums, gums bleeding when brushing, inflammation, sensitivity, and discoloration around your gums, these are all signs that you may have gum disease.

We provide periodontal care such as scaling & root planing (deep cleaning) and antibiotic treatment to eliminate oral bacteria and halt or reverse the progression of gum disease. Schedule your consultation now, and get the treatment you need to restore your healthy smile.

What Do I Do If I Chip A Tooth?

If you chip a tooth, the first thing you should do is call Downey Park Family Dentistry at (209) 529-0674 to get an emergency appointment at our office in Modesto. Chipping a tooth can cause serious pain and discomfort, and may increase your risk of complications like tooth decay.

Once you’ve arrived at our office, Dr. Acree will examine your tooth to determine what treatment is right for you. If you have a small chip in your tooth, he may recommend a cosmetic treatment like dental bonding or veneers.

However, if you have a very large chip in your tooth or you have a deep crack in your tooth, a dental crown will likely be recommended. Crowns cover up the tooth all the way down to the gumline, so they offer superior protection for seriously damaged teeth.

Is Dental Bonding Permanent?

Dental bonding is not permanent, but it does offer long-lasting results. If you care for your mouth properly, dental bonding will usually last at least 5-7 years, and some patients enjoy great results up to 10 years after treatment.

To make sure your teeth stay healthy and strong, you should brush twice a day and floss once a day. It’s also a good idea to come to Downey Park Family Dental every six months for a visit with Dr. Corey Acree.

At your checkup, Dr. Acree can check on your oral health and examine your bonded teeth, and ensure that your smile is in great shape. If he notices any issues such as cavities or a bonded tooth that may need to be redone, he can set you up with the follow-up treatment you need right away, giving you peace of mind.

Benefits of
Restorative Care

Even if you have a small dental issue that isn’t causing oral pain, it’s important to get restorative care in order to avoid more complications. If left untreated, dental issues will always get worse over time. Small cavities will turn into more serious damage, the first stages of gum disease will progress into periodontitis (which is irreversible), and other issues will begin to cause pain. Come in for restorative care as soon as you notice an issue in order to:

Avoid More Complications

If you do not get help for a dental problem as soon as possible, it will get worse over time, eventually interrupting your daily life. Pain, infection, and more tooth damage usually occurs. Missing teeth that are not replaced can cause your adjacent teeth to shift toward the empty space, causing long term occulsal (bite) issues. Getting restorative care right away ensures that you avoid worse issues later.

Get Out of Pain

A damaged or infected tooth can cause you serious pain, discomfort, and other health issues. With restorative dentistry, you can eliminate your pain and get back to your day-to-day activities. We use powerful numbing agents and oral conscious sedation to keep you comfortable throughout the entire restorative process.
