Can we fix it?

So, all that was left above the gum-line of the tooth that went yesterday was the large (2/3 of the tooth), old, amalgam filling of great antiquity. Plastic has been applied to make it tooth-shaped again, but now I'm in line for 2 crowns this autumn.

Those old-time 1970's dentists sure knew how to set themselves up with work for the future.

Well I can recommend and excellent Cambridge dentish who does implants (new teeth screwed into jaw rather than a crown stuck on top of old tooth). Permanant and they don't decay either!

Like you I suffered at hands of over enthusiastic driller and fillers in the 70s (and before).
