I had a consultation for private orthodontic treatment to correct my misaligned top arch which I hate. I was advised that my old amalgam fillings showed decay on the surrounding tooth and had cracked along with a badly fitted upper crown that will need to be replaced and a Cerec restoration on an un-finished crown!!! All this before orthodontic treatment can begin! However I am astounded that I have just had a crown fitted via NHS treatment and he has failed to address ANY of these issues. I had advised him of my concerns on my initial consultation I knew the lower fillings needed replacing but had no idea how bad my upper teeth were being as I cannot see them! He has not attempted to correct the fillings nor address the ill fitted crown and has totally ignored the un-finished crown!!! I am extremely upset and distressed by the matter what should I do???
