On Sunday I broke one of my teeth (1st Bicuspid) where the front of the tooth had separated but remained on intact to the naked eye.
I had an appointment with my dentist yesterday and she gave me the options of whitening the surface of the tooth or going for a white filling. I decided the best option was the white filling which was £95. I am really not happy with the result as I now basically have a stub of a tooth which is not symetrical and looks completely out of place with the rest of my teeth. It also appears to be at a funny angle. Should I complain to the dentist? Was I wrong in expecting the tooth to remain roughly the same size and shape after this procedure?
Kind Regards

You'll have to talk to the dentist. On rare occasions I will deliberately make the replacement filling for a broken tooth shorter so that it doesn't take as much biting pressure as before, but I always warn the patient in advance.
