I went for a dental cleaning and while I was under nitrous and the Dr. came in & showed me “close ups” of my teeth and told me that although they looked beautiful, that all the white fillings and crowns I had, from eye teeth back, had to be replaced. I needed 26 appointments or I could do it all in 1 shot under sedation which of course, I chose sedation since I had already explained to him my severe anxiety. 2 days later I questioned the necessity of this treatment plan and I was tag teamed by his sales team who made me feel even more nervous when they told me I was at risk of losing my teeth. I went through with it but thank God I only let him do one side. The temporaries were a disaster and I told his assistant that they were going to break if she didn’t get the bite correct but they broke 3 days later. The permanent crowns don’t touch each other (side to side), my upper teeth only meet my lower teeth at half of one crown with half of another along the whole span of entire right side of my mouth. I have pain in a tooth that previous to his work had no pain, they are yellow, short, they are flat (no contour what so ever). I have not had any dental work done for 3 years. I have asked him to fix them and had an orthodontist write him a letter as to the importance of restoring my bite. He keeps telling me I would need to pay for the sedation again. First of all, does any of this sound like the work of a “Cosmetic” dentist as he claims to be? Any suggestions on how to pick another dentist?
