Very large fillings are likely to be weak, unstable and to leak over time leading to recurrent decay and replacement with even larger fillings. The process of patching or replacing already large fillings is what we call “patchwork dentistry”.In most situations, patchwork dentistry ultimately leads to the loss of the tooth, or at least to further pain and expensive treatments.

A crown can strengthen a weakened tooth and help give it the best long term strength and prognosis. Lately newer materials and techniques allow us to strengthen teeth without having to sacrifice as much tooth structure (less drilling) for an even better tooth prognosis, e.g. onlays and veneers.
