I had a filling done less than three years ago and it came out last night. Do dentists warranty their work? A filling should last longer than three years shouldnt it?

Depends on the dentist. I had one come out after about a year. I called made the apointment and went in expecting to pay. Much to my surprise when the dentist said there was no charge.

Depends on the position of the filling, and how good you were taking care of your teeth.

This is timely.
I had a root canal done a month ago. Sevens days later a corner of the tooth breaks off. Twelve days later, the tooth splits one side loose, had to wait 'til today to have it removed. Most of the damn tooth is gone now, the bill was almost 5oo bucks.

Do I need to explain to anyone that I'm a tad PO'd?

Depends on the dentist:

My dentist crowned one of my teeth. Two years later the same tooth needed a root canal. He only charged me for the root canal and the new crown was on him since I don't have dental insurance and he did the original crown.
