Re: front teeth filling turns yellow?? *pls help!*
I have had the type of filling you are talking about on my front tooth for MANY years. About 15 years ago at my dentist's suggestion,the original filling was replaced. It had discolored a little bit, but it (the discoloration of the original filling) was not really very noticeable to me.
I drink coffee, tea, and up until 6 months ago smoked....The filling has never yellowed. So I would say, no. It is not natural for your filling to turn yellow.
Hopefully, your dentist will replace it for you free of charge.
If not, I would find another dentist.
