Could I Be Having a Toxic Reaction to my Filling?

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015
Q.

I’ve had a dental composite filling done and have had constant headaches ever since that make me vomit and I feel slow with bad concentration and brain fog. I never had headaches or these reactions before the filling – could it be a toxic reaction to the filling? The filling has a strong plastic taste to it which I can detect but have generally been feeling very unwell since it was placed. Have you seen this kind of reaction before in patients? I have an existing immunological disease.
Thanks.

Does Composite Filling Loosen Your Teeth?

Monday, April 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I am 23 years old. My front teeth had this black/brownish stain on the joint between the two. So I consulted a doctor an she did a composite filling on my teeth. Now I feel like it will fall off at any moment, it feels like I’ve lost the strength of my teeth. So my question to you is this: Does composite filling loosen your teeth’s strength drastically? What are the disadvantages of having a composite filling? Thank you.

I Am Worried About The Effects Of Amalgam Fillings. Please Guide Me On Whether I Should Go For Amalgam Fillings Or Cerec?

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Mark,
I have 6 cavities and I am getting them filled soon. My dentist is suggesting Amalgam fillings. I have done so much research on effect of Amalgam on health and teeth. Even composite fillings are not durable. I have come across Cerec cad cam fillings, but not sure of its durability and effects on health.
I am looking for long durable, natural looking fillings.
Please guide me on whether I should go for Amalgam fillings or Cerec? Or any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
Good day!

The composite on my front teeth is wearing away, should I get veneers instead

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011
Q.

I have a growing concern about my 2 front teeth, which have had for a long time now, ‘grooves’ – I’ve been told through brushing too hard. I’ve had them filled with composite a number of times, but the most recent time, the dentist actually drilled into the grooves to make them bigger (?!) I hadn’t had this before (but naturally I trusted the dentist, seeing as I know nothing about it), and although the teeth looked good for the past 2.5 years, they are now beginning to wear away as composite does, and I’m concerned they are going to look even worse if I don’t get them filled in again. That’s why I’m not considering porcelain veneers. Would porcelain veneers in this case be the best option, knowing that I will need to keep paying to have them filled in anyway? And is it really ‘usual’ to drill the grooves further to fill them with composite. I’m really worried this has ruined my otherwise very straight and very white teeth.

many thanks for your help,

A filling I had a long time ago is now a different shade, can the filling be resurfaced?

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011
Q.

Hey!! First of all, thanks for reading this! Now, my question: I have a filling on one of my front teeth that I got some years back, but now my teeth are whiter and the filling is…well, a different shade. I know there is a thing called resurfacing the filling, but I was wondering if there is another way to whiten it. Maybe some special whitening technique…? I look forward to hearing from you!!

Friday, November 26th, 2010
Q.

A gap has appeared in the middle of them and its really starting to effect my confidence. Iv been reading on the internet and it sounds very much like acid erosion. I was just wondering if anything could be done? Thank You

Is composite bonding aesthetically and durably the best choice when restoring chipped teeth?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

My 7 year old bumped heads today with a classmate and one upper front tooth and two lower front teeth have been chipped. We have been to the dentist who has said it is only enamel which has been chipped and they are confident there are no fractures, The lower teeth are too sensitive at present to bond with composite filling – it will have to wait til next week. I cannot help but feel saddened that he has chipped his permanent second teeth, Is the composite material hard wearing, natural looking and the best option at present? I need a positive opinion on this if possible, thanks.
