Don’t Delay Your Dental Filling Treatment in Turlock CA Any Longer
One of the most common restorative treatments provided by a dentist is a tooth filling. Fillings are recommended for patients who have areas of tooth decay affecting their health and the appearance of their smile. Decay can become troublesome for all dental patients including those in the Turlock, CA area. Decay can cause teeth to become sensitive to hot and cold food and beverages and other similar items or result in severe toothaches once the dental pulp has been reached. Decay needs to be treated as soon as it’s discovered to avoid further issues.
What are fillings?
Fillings are composite resin materials that are inserted into the tooth where the decay is. This stops the cavity from becoming larger and deeper and requiring more extensive treatments. Without fillings in place, patients face the risk of losing even all their teeth to decay.
Who is a candidate for fillings?
Every patient with cavities can depend on fillings to improve the health and appearance of their smiles and combat the effects of tooth decay. Dr. Ramsin K. Davoud provides an initial evaluation to determine candidacy and decide if any further treatments may be necessary.

What are the benefits of composite resin fillings?
In the past, many dentists used silver amalgam fillings. These fillings consisted of approximately 50 percent mercury. Mercury can be harmful to the human body, and can cause toxicity. Instead, patients can use composite resin fillings. These fillings are:
- Safer and more biocompatible – Composite resin is a safe, metal-free, biocompatible material. In addition to looking natural, patients can be confident that this type of material does not pose any health or toxicity risks.
Placement of composite resin fillings is straightforward and only requires a few steps. To begin, we prepare the area by using a local anesthetic and removing the damaged portion of the tooth. Once the area of the tooth is cleaned out and dry, we can apply the composite resin. This process helps ensure that as much as possible of the natural tooth is preserved. Once the cavity is completely filled, a special light will bond the composite into place. The filling can then be smoothed out to provide a proper bite surface.
- More aesthetic in appearance – Our teeth play an important role in our self-confidence. That’s because it is important to feel good about our smile. Our smile leaves a lasting first impression. People see a beautiful smile as a sign of happiness, health, and success.
In the past, silver amalgam fillings were the standard offering of many dentists due to their durability. These fillings are easily noticeable in the smile, even if they are at the very back of the mouth. Composite resin fillings are made of a combination of quartz and resin that can be matched to blend in with the rest of the tooth. No longer do patients have to deal with dark patches on the teeth simply because of a small cavity.
- Not susceptible to expanding or contracting with temperature changes
