Fillings FAQ Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Fillings that Squeak: I have recently had a filling replaced in a bottom left molar and now the tooth squeaks every time I eat.

The dentist who replaced the filling has filed it twice and says there is nothing more that can be done. Is there no way to stop the tooth from squeaking?

Why would it suddenly start to squeak? ...Visitor from Reading United Kingdom UK

It is apparently a silver filling and is obviously high, despite what your dentist has found.

If they dry the tooth very well and check your bite with you reclining, sitting up, moving your teeth left, right and forward they will find the area that is hittting prematurely.

If the filling is white or silver, the squeak is from the friction in movement of your teeth against one another.

I would have them check again, the fact that they had to file it down once is evidence it was too high to begin with. Best of luck.
