My Teeth Feel a Little Strange After Being Filed Down, Almost "Cruddy." Is This Normal?

I recently had my two front teeth filed down, and they feel a little strange. Almost like when you drink Sunny Delight or an acidic fruit drink and your teeth get cruddy. I went back to the dentist this morning to have them polished so they weren't so rough, and they're smoother now but still feel almost a little furry, I guess you could say. Is this normal? And will it improve with time if I use pro enamel toothpaste and mouthwash?

Eeth should feel "smooth as a baby's ass" after being filed

Ask your dentist to do a little more polishing until they feel as smooth as they used to.

Sounds like your teeth need more polishing

I am assuming they were filed down to make them even. Not sure what teeth or what part of the teeth. However what you are describing is lack of polishing after filing.

They will eventually self-polish with normal eating, biting and brushing. Not sure using Pronamel will help or not but it's a good toothpaste so it can't hurt.


Hope this helps
