Fix a Broken Filling

Losing a filling can be a truly painful and uncomfortable experience. When this happens, you become more susceptible to tooth decay and infection. Save your tooth and avoid further damage by visiting us at Battery Hill Dental, your local Currimundi dentist, for help.

Whether or not you feel pain from your lost or broken filling, it is important that you don’t delay dental treatment. A small break in your filling can cause a bigger dental problem when left untreated, which can lead to pricier and more complex procedures. At Battery Hill Dental, we can fix your broken fillings immediately.

New filling
We will clean your tooth, prepare it again if it has decay, and place a new filling on it. We’ll also make sure that your filling matches the colour of the rest of your teeth for an even, natural-looking smile.

If the tooth is still structurally sound but there are larger cracks or a big part of the filling and tooth are broken, then a dental crown may be necessary.

Other protective dental restoration
In other cases wherein a filling or a crown replacement is not necessary, we will find the appropriate treatment for you such as a root canal or extraction followed by a dental implant.

      Why do dental fillings break or dislodge?

      Whether you have tooth-coloured restorations, porcelain or amalgam fillings, they can break off or get dislodged for many reasons. Breakage can happen due to tooth decay, heavy chewing, habitual teeth grinding, wearing out, and many other reasons. Whatever the reasons are and even if the breakage doesn’t hurt, it’s still important to see your dentist right away.

        Why do dental fillings break or dislodge?

        Increased sensitivity

        Broken fillings can cause your tooth to be sensitive to hot or cold food and drinks, as well as sweet food. This is because your nerves are exposed when the filling came off.

        Difficulty cleaning

        When a filling breaks off, you may have a harder time flossing that part of your teeth than before. Or small pieces of food can get trapped on that part of your tooth and you have to brush it more thoroughly to clean it off.

        Rough, jagged feel

        Losing or breaking a filling can feel different. You can feel with your tongue that your particular tooth has a new rough, sharp or jagged area.

        Filling becomes loose

        Your filling may become lose as the bond weakens and you can feel it with your tongue. Or you can actually feel in your mouth a part of your filling come off as you chew or bite into food.
