Worn fillings and braces

I have 2 fillings which were both put in about 6/7 years ago. Both feel very worn, to the extent that I thought one of them may have come out. I visit my dentist every 6 months and he said they were fine. Is it normal for them to feel so worn?
Also, I got my braces taken off about a year ago after 3 and a half years, and was told in advance to expect a couple of cavities at least due to the length of time I wore the braces for. My dentist said my teeth are in great 'shape', I have had no treatment save orthodontic extractions since the above mentoined fillings were done. Is it normal not to get cavities after having braces for so long, or should I change dentists?
Thankyou xxx
