I just had two composites done. The two teeth were next to each other and apparently the decay was underneath the original fillings, at the sides of the teeth. The teeth were close to the top back of the mouth. One had an amalgam filling in it, which was replaced with a composite and the other was a composite. I didn't time it, but I know I was in the chair for probably an hour or more. It was awful. He seemed to drill excessively and now I am still not eating on it at all. Do these drills work slowly and chip away little bits at a time. Im worried that most of my two teeth have been drilled away. I saw the decay on the x ray, it didn't look like much.
