Question
QUESTION: Sir. Mene kuch din phele ek dentist se GI Green filling karvai hey to vo kitne dino ta mere danto ke sath stick rahegi

ANSWER: Its difficult to predict tapam. Your dentist should be in a position to opine on that.
I havent seen the tooth/decay, i dont have the xray and i dont know your bite.
Gi fillings are weak fillings reserved primarily for children but they have their uses in adults too.

I dont know tapam. Your question is similar to asking an interior decorator what colored drapes should be placed, without showing him the house.
You should trust your dentist and go with what he has advised.
