My cracked tooth reacts to pressure how can I get it fixed

Monday, October 19th, 2009
Q.
I have a cracked tooth and my dentist plans to fit a gold crown over it because it is a back tooth and this will be the strongest sort of crown. The nerve seems to be healthy so I have not had root canal treatment. However, the tooth does seem to hurt when pressured and I presume this is because the cracked tooth reacts to pressure. Could the crack be repaired so that it doesn’t move when under pressure or must it rely simply on the tooth being held together by the strong crown?

Can amalgam fillings be replaced with composite fillings?

Sunday, October 11th, 2009
Q.
In my most recent dentist visit, my dentist had replaced several of my silver amalgam fillings with composite ones (not sure which exact type but it did involve UV light and some sort of bonding agent). One of the teeth was a Molar with pretty big cavity the filling covered most of the top of the tooth/chewing surface). Afterwards, I read online that specifically for Molars and certain cavities (not sure which ones) composite fillings are recommended less than silver (amalgam) ones due to increased problems with leakage, less longetivity (about 5 yrs less than amalgam), and if compromised higher chances of having to do a root canal to fix it. At the same time, I am pretty sure he used the most recent version of composite filling used in US – because he just recently started using it and was REALLY proud of it. So the material was the latest version, not sure about his technique though since its my first experience with this particular filling method. This made me concerned, since the cavity I had was pretty deep and another dentist (couple of years back) warned me that next time I might have to do a root canal because of the depth of the cavity. My question is was my current dentist right in replacing my old amalgam fillings for a big cavity in my molar – the cavity was at the top of the tooth (chewing surface) with composite fillings instead of using silver amalgam again?

Can my upper lip be tightened?

Saturday, September 5th, 2009
Q.
Hello Was wondering if you can kindly give me advice. I have a short upper lip which means my lips do not meet when I relax & consequently I always show my upper teeth. I have previously had Orthodontic & jaw surgery but my lips still do not meet. Is there a procedure where I can have my top lip lengthened? If so, can you provide me with details & where I have could have this done. Thanks for your help
