Jessica Millership, 21, says she suffered years of pain and sensitivity after Dr Adi Uzvolk wrongly gave her a filling when she was ten years old.
Jessica, from Walkden, Manchester, said: "I was only 10 at the time and I remember thinking it was strange that I needed a filling at such a young age, as I thought it was more common in adults.
"Dr Uzvolk just told my mum and me that it was nothing to worry about."
But over the next three years Miss Millership regularly returned to Dr Uzvolk, complaining of extreme pain and sensitivity in the tooth.
She said: "My tooth also started to change colour, which made me feel self-conscious. Dr Uzvolk just said that it was a normal toothache and there was nothing to be concerned about."
Finally in March 2010, Miss Millership went to see Dr Uzvolk for an emergency appointment as the pain had become so excruciating and he informed her that the tooth had to be extracted.
After she had the tooth removed, she was left scared to smile due to the gap in her teeth.
Her mum contacted dental negligence experts and the case was settled out of court. The dentist did not admit liability.
