I had a silver filling on a back tooth replaced with a white composite filling 3 months ago. I have had a lot of sensitivity in that tooth ever since. Sensitive to hot cold and sometimes bite. It doesn’t occur without stimulus and isn’t prolonged. However, it is enough that it bothers me and I dont want to feel it. I use sensodyne which does help, however my other teeth are not particularly sensitive. I have been back to my dentist twice, she has x-rayed it and says sensitivity is normal and not to worry. She also put another ‘layer’ of something on it. I have read a great deal about this subject and dont know what to do next?! change dentist, replace it with a silver filling or onlay? This filling has caused a lot of discomfort and never felt right from the start. Would appreciate your opinion. Thanks Q
