Lost Fillings, Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays Glen Waverley

Dental restorations such as fillingscrownsinlays and onlays are designed with your comfort in mind. They are made of durable materials to ensure optimum performance as they participate in your teeth’s day-to-day functions.

Unfortunately, these dental restorations are not indestructible. Like your teeth, they can suffer damage leading to inconvenience, discomfort, and even pain.

At EK Dental Surgery, anything that causes inconvenience to you or compromises your oral health is a serious matter. We treat every dental issue with care and urgency, more so in cases of dental emergencies.

If you or your loved ones in Glen Waverley have an emergency like lost fillings, crowns, inlays and onlays, do not hesitate to see your emergency dentist at EK Dental Surgery. We have same-day emergency appointments to cater to your concerns as soon as possible. 

What Causes Them Damage?

A number of things can cause damage to your dental restoration. We have listed the most common of them. Take a look.

  • Natural wear and tear
  • Use of your teeth and dental restorations as tools outside their normal functions
  • Secondary cavities forming underneath
  • Improper care
  • Poor dental work during placement 

First Aid Steps

First aid steps do not solve dental problems. They merely provide temporary relief to help you manage before your trip to the dentist.

In case of a lost or damaged dental restoration, here’s what you can do:  

Dental Crowns

  • Rinse mouth thoroughly.
  • Locate and secure the dental crown.
  • Lessen sensitivity of the tooth by applying a little clove oil using a cotton swab.
  • A temporary dental cement can be used to keep the crown in place on your way to the dentist.
  • Never use household glue to reattach the crown, this can hurt your teeth and further damage your dental crown.
  • Visit your dentist immediately.  

Tooth Fillings, Inlays/Onlays

  • Rinse mouth thoroughly to remove all broken parts.
  • Do not reattach them to avoid swallowing or breathing them in.
  • Lessen sensitivity of the tooth by applying a little clove oil using a cotton swab.
  • Visit your dentist immediately.

Removing all broken parts of the dental restoration is very important. Accidental swallowing of them simply passes without a problem. But if you breathe them in, they can cause an infection in your lungs. 


Your Glen Waverley dentist will determine whether or not your dental restoration can be fixed or if you need to have a new one. The best way to relieve you of your suffering is to visit your dentist right away.

Had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Lydia Tseng a month ago. Was extremely nervous but she was so very kind and gentle, I dare say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire procedure. All thanks to this super patient dentist. Thank you so much. I might actually be nearly happy about my next visit 🤞🏼😆

Our family have already attended the EK dental surgery with Dr. Lydia for a couple of years. Dr. Lydia is our best choice after compared with other dentists, especially on children’s dental care. She is very patient and very professional on children’s noncooperation. She explained the treatment clearly and given us good advice. She is always gentle when checked teeth. She used a lot of strategies to help my son for relaxing and be comfortable while filling a tooth. My son was very resistant to see dentist because he had a bad experience in another clinics before, but Dr. Lydia was very patient and given my son a lot encouragement. I highly recommended Dr. Lydia
