This is more common than you think. Removing the rotted portion of a tooth can definitely cause some soreness. Do you get mad when you have pain after surgeon removes your gallbladder? Please remember that the dentist is not the one who neglected the tooth and put the cavity there. If the tooth is cracked then it has to be removed because there is no way to fix this, but the only way to know if it's cracked is to remove the tooth and look at it.....and at that point it doesn't matter. Fillings do not create cracks.....if there is a crack then the crack was already there and there is no way for you or the dentist to know since they are microscopic and do not show up on xrays. And no, you shouldn't get your money back because you are paying for time and expertise, not results. In my dental office I have this conversation before the procedure. If you can guarantee to me that your body will heal without problems, then I will give a money-back guarantee that you won't have any problems.

Jackal_Moon,

Depending on the type of filling it was, it may have a warranty. I discovered this
yesterday when I got a porcelain filling instead of metal. So if the tooth with
the filling cracked, I would go back to the dentist who did the work and see
what the recourse is.

They should have taken xrays of your tooth prior to the filling and once it was completed.
I'm speaking from just getting one yesterday and that is what they did.

Now my dentist also explained that I may have some sensitivity to cold food, however,
they put some medicine in that tooth to alleviate that but wanted me to know I still
may experience that.

Good luck!!

It's normal and goes away after 4-6 weeks (for me). They can and will try to sell you a $30 tube of toothpaste, never used it though.
