Could you please tell me whether it is possible for the dentist to scratch my front teeth while he was removing the tartar from under the gums with that manual metallic instrument?
As I left the dental clinic I noticed long scratches on my front teeth (some of them rather deep-like cracks) I have not seen before. When I asked him about it he answered it is not possible to scratch the enamel this way and that I was exaggerating and the scratches were hardly visible. I do not think they have always been there and I did not see them before since i did not even have plague on my front teeth to conceal them.
Also, is it possible to polish this scratches away since i read this is the usual practice with such scratches? How does this procedure work on scratches?
