My dentist found two cavities during my long hiatus from the dreaded dental office. To my knowledge, this is the first time I've had cavities. His recommendation was to either fill them in with Amalgams ($45 per) or Post. Composite ($67 per). I'm... (more)
An old filling fell out today. There is an obvious hole in my tooth (one of my lower first molars, just back from the canines). It does not hurt - just feels a bit "weird" - like something that I'm used to is missing. According to the Weston A... (more)
