With the tools of modern dentistry, dental professionals can provide high-quality tooth restorations that last for many years.
Fillings and crowns are among the most common treatments used to restore damaged teeth.
Today, these restorative treatments are made even stronger and long-lasting because of the high-quality materials being used to manufacture them.
However, for various reasons, your tooth filling or dental crown may come loose and fall out. Some of the common reasons include:
The dentist will first evaluate the tooth with the lost filling or crown in order to determine the cause. For tooth fillings, the dentist may need to repair or replace the restoration, or go over other treatment options. If the filling needs to be replaced, you can choose a filling material that suits your preferences.
For lost crowns as well as inlays/onlays, the dentist can permanently cement the damaged restorations back to its original place. Before re-cementing them, the dentist will thoroughly clean the area to avoid the development of infection.
