24. He patched it by bonding it

 

The original white plastic fillings (back in the 60s) would shrink and leak, and caused worse problems down the road. (My mother had our neighbor/dentist use the white plastic on 4 of my molars so my teeth wouldn't have any silver in them. They leaked and cavities tunneled through all my teeth except the fronts. I had to have major dental work 10 years later, and then again in the early mid-80s, when I was lucky to not need any root canals).

Everything has held up since my 80s upgrade until the popcorn last week.

The new materials are dramatically improved don't shrink the way the early stuff did, so less likely to leak. All he needed to do was make a new little "tooth wall" where it broke off.
