Lost Fillings, Crown or Inlay/Onlay

Knocked Out Tooth Emergency Doncaster East Dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, and inlay/onlay restore the teeth and protect them from further damage.

They are made of strong materials so they can help perform the daily functions of teeth.

Although durable, these dental restorations can still wear out or break.

They can break anytime, anywhere, and for anyone who has a dental restoration.

When this happens, discomfort and inconvenience are certain to follow.

If your dental restorations are lost or damaged, your Doncaster East dentist can help you with a guaranteed same-day emergency appointment.

Reasons For Restoration Damage

Natural wear and tear

Your dental restorations won’t last forever. Several years of use can weaken and break them when they reach their limit.


Your teeth are not tools, and neither are your dental restorations. Using them as tools, other than what they are designed for, can cause breakage.

Biting down on hard objects, opening packages, and tearing tape are some of the actions that teeth are not supposed to perform.

Poor dental hygiene

One of the most common reasons for getting dental restorations is to protect a tooth from further damage.

Before initial placement, your Doncaster East dentist will remove all the decayed parts, and clean your teeth thoroughly.

Good oral hygiene practices are advised to keep your teeth and your dental restorations at their best.

Failure to follow good practices can stimulate bacteria build-up and attack the tooth supporting your dental restorations.

Poor dental work

Having the right dentist is important in ensuring the longevity and durability of your dental restorations.

Shoddy dental work by an unskilled dentist can result in faulty dental restorations.

What To Do

Lost/damaged tooth fillings and inlay/onlay

In case of lost/damaged tooth fillings, inlay/onlay, here’s what you can do:

  • Rinse your mouth well to remove remaining broken pieces.
  • Put clove oil on the tooth to help lessen pain and sensitivity.
  • Do not attempt to reattach the damaged dental restorations to your teeth. Swallowed, they do not pose a risk, but when breathed in, they can cause infection in your lungs.
  • Visit your Doncaster East dentist immediately.

Lost/damaged crowns

In case of lost/damaged crowns, here’s what you can do:

  • Locate and secure the crown.
  • Put clove oil on the tooth to help lessen pain and sensitivity.
  • Apply dental cement or petroleum jelly to keep the dental crown in place on your way to the dentist.
