When Is A Crown Better Than A Filling?

Do you have a tooth that is cracked or decayed? Do you ever wonder how your dentist might repair it, or why they may recommend covering your tooth with a crown instead of simply giving you a filling? Today, to answer these questions and help you know what to expect, we’re happy to discuss the benefits of crowns and fillings.

When looking at your options, do finances have an impact? There are instances where your dentist could use a filling or a crown to repair your smile, but when a crown may be the better idea. If you are missing a good deal of a natural tooth, but a filling could do the same. However, in these situations, you could lose your filling relatively quickly. This is important because many insurance companies will not cover a filling or a crown for a tooth that has had a filling within the last two years. This means that even if you are striving to save time and money by having a filling, you could actually spend more.

Of course, we recommend visiting a dentist for specific advice. If you would like to learn more, please feel free to contact us today. We are excited to hear from you.
