Hi there. My dentist is informing me that a crown must be done for a cavity I have. On the exterior, the cavity appears to be very small. I have a feeling the dentist is just trying to make more money off of me. Is there any situation where a crown MUST be done over a filling?

  • the crown is given when the filling is very broad or wall of the tooth is chipped off. If the tooth is root canal treated even then the crown is recommended. If the cavity is very small and from all sides is surrounded by tooth structure then there is no need to go for crown.
