Most dental fillings are secured to the surrounding teeth with a strong dental adhesive, or they are bonded to the tooth enamel by a special type of ultraviolet light. If you struggle to maintain a consistent daily oral hygiene regimen, the plaque acids and bacteria in your mouth can start to weaken the dental fillings hold.
As this continues to happen, the weakened tooth enamel might allow the dental filling to come loose or fall out. In a situation like this, you should seek treatment at Dr. Gurusharan Singh’s dental office as soon as possible. After he has examined the tooth he can help you understand the most effective method for restoring the tooth.
In some of these cases, there simply isn’t enough healthy tooth enamel remaining to secure a new dental filling. In a case like this Dr. Gurusharan Singh might recommend restoring the tooth with a same-day dental crown. This treatment starts with Dr. Gurusharan Singh removing the tooth enamel layer to leave behind a small post which is known as an abutment. This will later serve to anchor your crown into your mouth. Then a detailed impression will be created of the abutment and surrounding teeth before Dr. Gurusharan Singh covers it with a customized crown the very same day. Dr. Gurusharan Singh will cement your new dental crown in place with a strong dental adhesive that will bond it to the abutment for many years.
