3 months ago my dentist told me to redo both of my molars in the bottom left side. I had no pain or biting problems in both of them before his job. He did both teeth fillings in one session. However, they were too tall and one of them was pretty painful when I bite. So I went back there after 3 days and he shortened them. After that my bite was ok, however, I still had so much pain when I tried to bite anything with one of the fillings even after 1.5 month after filling. I was thinking it might need root canal treatment so got back to my dentist and he disagreed and insisted on adjusting my bite. This time not only he shortened a little of both tooth fillings, but also he shortened their upper molar teeth. He said the crack in your first filling might come from the pressure of the upper tooth. He asked me to come back if I still have pain after 2 weeks. I still had the same pain in one of the filling when I tried to chew with it. I got back to him and I was thinking that he is going to do something else. But he still insisted on bite adjustment. This time he shortened too much of not only the two healthy molar theeth on top of the filled teeth but also shortened the premolar beside them on top. Now my bite is really uneven. When I put together my right side teeth, non of my left side top and bottom molars and pre molars has contact. And the filled tooth still pain when I am biting. I have done orthodentical treatment for five years and my teeth and bite were completely oriented and adjusted before all of these happened for me. Now I am freaked out and don't know what to do. I scared that he shortened so much from three upper healthy teeth. I also scare that my teeth start to move because now my bite is completely uneven. Please help me. What is your recommendation?
