Question:
I am with at a dental center now and they seem to want to do a lot of work on my teeth. They want to change all of my silver fillings to white, to change my gold crown to white and to crown one of my other teeth even though there is nothing wrong with it. They say that the filling is too big and that it would be better to crown it. So far I have let them change one of my fillings to white and I have had tooth pain for the last two and a half months. When I went back they said that the filling is close to the root now that it may be better to kill the root. I'm due to go back in 2 weeks for them to sort out my tooth pain but it seems a lot of work to me. Please let me know what you think?

Answer:
Dear Tracey,
The idea of replacing silver fillings with white fillings has been considered quite thorughly in the US and other countries. The consences is that many reputable dentist will not recommend this procedure. Most dentists who recommend replacing silver filling with white ones are just looking for money. If that is the motivation there could be a reason to question his other recommendations.
