Does this tooth need a crown?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: mbistro  (6 years ago)
I had a tooth refilled 3 months ago. I went back to have the filling adjusted because there was overhang, and I could not get the floss through without shredding in two. There was sensitivity to cold, hot, sweet and pressure for a long time. The sensitivity has reduced by about 90%, and now the greatest annoyance is how the tooth feels to my tongue. Would a crown relieve all sensitivity for good? What about an onlay? Would a gold crown over a silver filling cause a galvanic response? The neighboring tooth also has an amalgam filling, as does the tooth directly below it. Would a ceramic crown be a better choice? Should the filling be removed and replaced by a non-silver, composite filling before any crown is placed? Would it be enough to just have the filling redone, or should anything be done at all if the sensitivity is hardly noticeable?

Not the best anatomy in a carved silver filling I have seen. Just have the dentist contour it better with a rotary pointed stone, then polish it with rubber polishing points. Please don't waste money replacing it with a composite, nor cutting it down to smithereens for a crown.
