Customer Question

My upper left molar has suddenly developed a rough edge. I had the silver filling replaced about a year ago with a white filling. It almost feels like it needs to be "smoothed out". What is this? Thank you.

It is a rather large filling. I have had something similiar happen several months ago to another tooth and they were able to smooth it out. At the time the dentist said the filling material had started to overlap the tooth? Is this possible?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
The fillings are both white. Im sure it is just chipped?
