Very rough fillings

Hi, I have many fillings in my teeth and molars that are very very rough. The feeling doesn't bother me very much but I'm worried that this rough texture in them cause problems with the hygiene and plaque removal although I brush and floss every day. I have already gum problems so I was wondering if I should make something about it...

Thanks!

Hi melisa, as comfortdentist suggests, your dentist can simply polish them to make them smooth again. Do you have a trusted dentist you could get in touch with?

Thank you comfortdentist and Enarete. The fillings were done a few months ago and later I switched to another clinic for second opinions about some issues. This new staff seems more professional so I will tell them about the fillings the next week :)

It's easier to be rough than smooth
