Help! - Bad adjustments after fillings?

Hello, I recently had three fillings done - two on the top left, one on the top right, all of them being "supporter" teeth from what it seems.

The problem is that after the fillings, one of the top lefts, most of all, felt like it had a popcorn kernel in it, with the other two feeling slightly touchy. I freak out about these things a little, and I didn't want it effecting my bite, so a few days later, I requested that the dentist do an adjustment.

Right away, I noticed that they spent forever doing the adjustment, tons of drilling, and that at one point, I even felt a strong sensation right when white dust flew out of my mouth. Right after this adjustment, my first words were "My left side feels so comfortable that it feels like I'm biting on air!" Only minutes later, the reality hit me that I couldnt' connect my left row teeth (mostly the teeth between the very back and very front), and that only my front teeth and the very back left tooth were taking the pressure - something that had never been a feature of my bite in my life.

As of now, a month later, and multiple discouraging and even heart-dropping consultations with dentists (without any adjusting being done), my front teeth are banging together when I talk, eat, or even close my mouth. I can, with very stressed muscles, put my bite back to where it used to be, but with that position, my teeth no longer line up. Now, the most comfortable position is one were my teeth seem to go together better, but now my front teeth hit! I know this is bad for my teeth and I have no clue what to do!

Basically, I know that this dentist drilled down my fillings (and possibly my real teeth!) way too much, though they are adamant that they didn't and that my bite must have been like this before the adjustment (though the dentist said pre-fillings that I had an absolute perfect bite!). This is ruining my bite and teeth, and yet extreme steps like jaw surgery or braces are absolutely not under any circumstance an option for me because of my funds and career. What are possible cures to this and has anyone here been through this problem!!?!!
