Would you always be able to tell if a filling came out?!

I am sure I've had three fillings, one in 2005, one in 2010 and one in 2013. Whilst randomly inspecting my mouth the other day, as you do, I could only see two?! I am so ire I've got three but couldn't find the third. Sure they were all grey fillings as well so easy to spot. Can't see anything odd about any other teeth nothing hurts or feels weird and never felt anything fall out. Am I going mad?!

You'd be able to feel the hole. Are you able to get a little mirror and take a look? If one of the fillings was obvious your dentist may have used a white filling so you may be unable to see it.

Mine fell out recently, the hole was obviously. Worth getting it checked.

Oohh I feel so silly now!
I had a good poke around with a little mirror and found the third filling, it's in a wisdom tooth at the top, which is so far back it can't be seen just when opening mouth normally blush So I do have all my fillings, phew!
