Hi - nervous patient here.
Added photos with area of worry circled in black. This filling is 6/7 years old now. I used to have a wee 'bump' near the edge of it. I've noticed it's not there now. Unsure if the filling is missing there or if its just the tooth that is worn down on that area?

*I know I have enamel staining and decay on front of tooth. It's been monitored for years and hasn't progressed to the point a filling is needed. Also the filling has dark areas but I have been told that it's sealed but the filling is stained and general wear. Xrays have show no decay. *

@Gordon ah, good! Worried a bit of filling was missing. Looking at it in mirror cusp looks flatter than before, must be worn down a little. Thanks for replying
