How Can I Sort Out the Surface Scratch On My Tooth?

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I noticed a faint surface scratch on my front tooth. I’m panicking that it’s going to crack or something. Is this normal? It’s hardly visible and  it’s very faint. Could any toothpaste help or could it strengthen and disappear on it’s own? Also, someone told me that it could just be a natural line of the tooth. I’m very conscious of my teeth so hopefully I’m just worrying about nothing. I hope you can put my mind at rest. Thanks.

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.
