Answer:

Dear Torstein,

It is very common to plastic fillings symptoms. In some cases there may be symptoms for up to several months and in some cases disappear the symptoms never. I think you should go to your dentist to see if your sammenbid is in order. If a filling or more is too high, they can cause similar symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

Complaint about teeth whitening

Filed in Complaints, Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

Hello

I have a couple of days ago got my top 6 front teeth bleached at my dentist. My one incisor is a slightly darker than the other, when it in order to use my dentist's words, is “the sand” after a blow from mælketanden blurted out when I was about. 3 years old. During the whitening was the first for themselves, with a product which was smeared on in 1 – 1½ mm layer thickness and then it should be stirred around with a kind of spatula (made dentist) in 10 min, then got all 6 front teeth the place in 10 min. Right after the treatment I could see a bit of difference, but already after 4 -5 hours, I think that I was back at the starting point, and could/can be no difference, see. My dentist has not yet received payment, then she would switch plastic fillings. But it is not necessary to get switched plastic fillings when I can't see farveforskellen longer. My question is whether it can be right that I need to pay a few thousand kr for no difference or whether I can complaint or the like?

Vh Mette

Answer:

Dear Mette,

I think you should talk with your dentist about what you think. It is hard for me to comment on such a specific question, when I do not know how the starting point was and how it looks today. I do not believe that you will get something out of that complaint, as your dentist immediately not have made a wrong treatment.

Even if you complain about the treatment, you should be aware that you do not let to pay the bill. So immediately I would suggest that you find a solution together with your dentist.

Dear user

It is very common that the teeth can be sore after a new plastfyldning. Some of the symptoms up to 6 months and the other will never be symptom-free. If this has great genes, the tooth probably rodbehandles. It is always a good idea to seek out a dentist if you are in doubt or in pain. I don't know how many fillings it is in your case, but maybe tyggefladen be adjusted, if you chew too hard on the teeth, it can also cause symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

I'm considering to switch sølvfyldningerne out with the plastic

5. may 2009  
Filed in Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

I have a number of older sølvfyldninger as I am considering to switch out with the plastic fillings since I think it looks nicer.
The old fillings are not particularly visible but can be seen when I laugh and some of them are quite large.
What considerations should I make before I make the investment in a whiter smile?

Answer:

Dear Anonymous

It would be best to speak with your own dentist. Then together lay out a treatment plan over the fillings that are necessary to change and what can wait. Then you can take one after the other, without it being too expensive. It can be an expensive affair to change the sølvfyldningerne out to the plastic.

Mvt.Susanne

Answer:

Dear Susanne

I can well understand why you are frustrated. But the teeth wear out too with age, and it is quite normal that they break with time, especially when they have been drilled in before. The cause may be dental caries or infraktion in the tooth.

You can seek local authority about grants for dental care. So you must together with your dentist create a treatment plan that says what treatments are necessary and how much they cost. This must be included when you apply for grants. It is individually where/ or if we get some money for treatment, and this is taken into account what income you have.

Hope you can use my answer.
