Dear Dr. Ellie,
About 4 years ago I got a mouthful of white fillings. The fillings in the back teeth started breaking down and leaking a year ago. My dentist told me the teeth could not be refilled and would have to be crowned because the fillings were so large to begin with. Within the last couple weeks I have noticed that the fillings between my front teeth have also broken down. (This is what prompted me to discover and start your CWT system.)
I can see holes between my teeth if I turn my head and look at them in the mirror. They are not so noticeable if I look at my teeth straight-on, and at this point I’m the only one who realizes they are there. They are somewhat sensitive at times, but not painful. I would like to heal them with your system but I’m starting to fear it may be too late. I’ve considered going to my dentist but I’m honestly terrified that he will tell me that my front teeth can’t be refilled and will need to be crowned. I absolute do NOT want that; I would like to keep my front teeth intact! I know you can’t say for sure without seeing me, but can you give me an idea of how bad a front tooth would need to be before it would require a crown?
Thank you again! JM
PS–I am loving the system so far. I’ve been using it for just over a week and my teeth are already shiny and whiter. And no more of that gross ‘fuzzy’ feeling on my teeth when I run my tongue over them after eating–they feel smooth all the time now!
I am not in any position to answer your question I wish I could.
I can tell you that if you did not have a dentist I would advise you to trust the “feel” of your teeth. Keep on the system and as long as your teeth “feel” better with less sensitivity then you should be on a very good track.
People have seen their teeth harden up remember to clean your toothbrush regularly store it dry and eat some xylitol after every meal or snack.
I believe you have a better than 50-50 chance of doing this!
