I think the dentist gave me the wrong colored fill in -.-

I got 4 out of the 17 total done last week. I went in today to get another 4 done. I had a different dentist this time. I noticed my fill in doesn't look like the last four I got done on top. These are slightly grayish. The other ones, from what I can tell, are completly white looking. I still have a few little pieces of the fill in in my mouth that I'll randomly feel and spit out. They are gray little concrete looking peices. I don't remember having this happen last time. Did she get me the wrong color? I got back again next Tuesday, do they need to be redone or something?

They probably just gave you the silver fillings. Its the same thing just isn't white. I think the white ones are for real bad cavities.

The only difference I know of between the white and silver is the cost. The white cost more than the silver, but they both serve the same purpose.

No, they are trying to match the color of your teeth.

OP, I would call and ask.

Oh BTW they only ask me about the color I wanted once, I assumed they had the color choice on my records.

That's just the other color that they have. You can ask to have the silver ones replaced with white ones if you don't like them.

Trust me, they are all pretty bad. Before these sessions, I had never been to a dentist before.

 Took me a second to realize what you were talking about.  I am assuming you meant a filling? not a fill in?

Shoving my front teeth are pretty white. My back ones are the ones that suck. She did teeth you can see easily when I talk. They don't match my others at all :/
