Detailed Answer:
Hi.First of all thank you for approaching us for your query. I read through your query and I must say that both of your questions have solutions.Regarding the questions
1) wearing of the restorations so fast can be due to excessive use of that side for chewing ...and as a result of wearing the inner structure of the teeth(dentin) which has small nerve endings get exposed resulting in sensitivity. I suggest you to get it filled again and see for the duration of the restoration.If still its wearing off fast better to put a crown over that.I can understand that you will be biting excessively from that side because other side pain is there.Please sent me the pic of this side area of concern.
2) regarding pain on right side It can be tooth decay, gum infections anything.I suggest you to please sent a pic of the area concern so that we can reach a proper conclusion.
Hope you have understood what I meant.Waiting for your reply.Thank you have a healthy day.
