Try not to loose your actual tooth
It's always recommended to keep the current tooth with an additional filling treatment rather than receiving a treatment which comes with removing a major part of your tooth or in some cases the whole tooth. You will always have the chance to jump to the secondary treatment which can be crown, dental implants, veneers or so, while it's never possible to jump back from dental crown, dental implants or veneers to filling. So the best is to fix your tooth with filling as many times as possible before taking any action for any secondary dental treatment.
As long as you have your actual tooth, for upcoming potential problems with that specific tooth, you will have more numerous options and safe treatments.
How to maintain a tooth which has received multiple filling treatments
Since a great part of your tooth may contain variety of different materials combined together, it's strongly advised to have soft food with that specific tooth, if possible to help that tooth last longer.
You should also keep this tooth as clean as possible to protect it from additional cavities in future.
What should I consider, once I'm going to receive an additional filling treatment for a single tooth?
You're about to use different materials or probably methods for the more recent dental filling treatment you're about to receive. So it's extremely important to know if the materials have no negative effect on each other, on your body, while also no negative effect on your body if they combine together.
Your doctor must do a very exact analysis about your previously done dental filling treatment, also about your gum, mouth and body prior to take any action about the new dental filling.
"If this step in your additional dental filing is done correctly, you're almost good!"
After all, the major thing you as the patient must consider is to choose the right dentist who is experienced in frequent filling treatments and is eventually not one of those who are suggesting implants for any simple tiny reason.
Your dentist should have enough reasons for any treatment else than filling, while he should do a great job in analysis of your current tooth and current filling.
