Broken Fillings

How do I know my dental filling is broken?

Dental fillings don’t last a lifetime and can become cracked or broken over time as you chew, grind your teeth or eat hard foods. When a filling breaks or falls out the inner portion of your tooth is now unprotected. Food and bacteria will get underneath the fractured filling and can cause:

  1. Pain upon chewing
  2. Sensitivity to hot or cold
  3. Cavities
  4. Infections of the nerve of the tooth
  5. Food stuck between your teeth.
  6. Localized gum irritations, infections and bone loss
  7. Bad breath
  8. Tooth loss

How do I fix my broken filling?

We will thoroughly examine the tooth and use x-rays to check for new decay. If the filling can be repaired, we’ll smooth out rough edges and replace any lost material. For extensive damage, we may recommend replacing the entire filling to prevent further issues.

Don’t wait to get a broken filling repaired.

Our experienced emergency dentists at Emergency Dental of Kansas City provide urgent dental care to fix broken fillings with strong, tooth colored filling material. Don’t wait with the discomfort and risks of a broken dental filling – the sooner it’s fixed, the better.

Call our emergency dental office today or we accept walk-ins during open hours for same-day filling repair on days the office is open, including weekends. Let us promptly restore your filling so you can get back to eating and drinking comfortably. Our friendly and experienced staff are experts at handling insurance claims, and we offer flexible payment plans that fit your budget.
