Can I Have My Tooth Polished So It Doesn’t Feel Rough?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had a filling done on my tooth and the dentist put a clamp over it and scratched the surface, leaving it feeling rough. Next time I was in I mentioned it and he buffed the tooth surface. Now the whole thing feels rough and a bit sensitive. The rest of my teeth are smooth and shiny feeling, can it be fixed? Or is my tooth now completely damaged and irreparable? Will this lead to my tooth decaying and having to be removed? Many thanks in advance.

After I Had My Teeth Sand Blasted, They Feel Rough. Should I Have Them Polished Or Will It Damage The Enamel Further?

Friday, February 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me. I had my teeth cleaned they used a sandblast to clean them. I did not have much staining but they said it is really good. Since I had it done my teeth feel very rough and not much shine on them any more I went back as my teeth looked very frosted, he polished the two top teeth up which now feel smooth an silky but all the sides of teeth still same feel rough and full of dirt which I never had before. Will I be better getting them polished up or has he damaged the enamel from the sandblast treatment I had done? Please help me with this, it’s really bugging me.

I Feel Silly Going Back To My Dentist A Third Time, Why Didn’t My Dentist Polish It When I Went Back A Second Time?

Friday, September 13th, 2013
Q.

Earlier this week I had two top front crowns replaced however when I got home I realised that one crown was longer on one site. I went back the next day and my dentist filed some of the crown down , a little too much if I’m being honest but he made me feel so silly for coming back I did not feel like I could say anything so I just left.

The problem is the filed tooth feels so rough and sharp and I am constantly aware of it when I talk as it rubs on my upper lip and tongue, but I feel too silly to go back again. My question is should my dentist have polished my tooth or something else in order to smooth it out? Thank you.

I had my tooth surface polished but it still feels rough, why is this?

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010
Q.
I don’t know how I did it but the inside surface of one of my front teeth feels really rough and I went to have it polished at my dentist to make it smooth. However, it hasn’t sorted the problem and the tooth surface is still rough and uncomfortable. Why isn’t the polishing solving the problem and what other things can be done to make the tooth surface smooth again?,
