I got a silver fillling done years ago when I was 16 and am wondering if it's going bad at the edge on the tongue side of my tooth. I noticed black there a few years back, but my Dentist told me 6 months ago it was still holding well. I looked now, and am not sure if it's still good. At the same time, I don't want it drilled for nothing since it's a big filling. I still remember gripping the chair as the Dentist drilled that big awful hole in the middle of my molar without numbing , & then gave me the news that I'm going to be getting my first permanent silver filling in a molar to show off when I yawn (like that was going to cheer me up). How do you think it looks? I really don't want it drilled again, especially since the drilling would go even deeper.
