i got a filling done yesterday and it was a horrible process and will not be returning to the dentist. however, my filling doesn’t seem to be done right. when i got one before i couldn’t even tell where it was done, but these are definitely there. i can feel them with my tongue and it’s smooth and feels flat across my tooth, instead of being filed to fit the ridges of my teeth. now, my retainers for my braces don’t fit right. i don’t know what to do.
 
Either go back to that dentist or find another one... not much else you can do I'm afraid.
 
My vote would be for "find another one"... we've got some tips here:

 
@Gordon how am i to know if the filling was done incorrectly/poorly?

Bit of a clue there...
