    I sought a second opinion and was told that my fillings are cracking (four teeth)
    I ended up having them fixed by the "second opinion" dentist.

    My question is - will my original dentist be able to tell that someone else did the work?
    I am afraid he may think I am disloyal.

    I would be grateful for your advice.

    Why did you go for a 2nd opinion?
    Why did you go through with the proposed treatment?
    Why are you going back to your former dentist?
    And of course he can tell. Wouldn't bother me though, you're not my pet dog or something.
