Hi..

Basically My Dentist Has Said I Can Have A Deep Filling Done Which Will Be Tomorrow & There’s A Chance The Tooth Might Or Might Not Settle.. ? Or For In The Future.. I Can Possibly Have A Crown.. Wouldn’t I Just Be Better Getting A Crown Now So The Tooth Doesnt Crack Under The Filling As Its A Large Filling..?

Thank You xx

Hi, not sure if your question is answerable by anyone other than a dentist who has actually seen the tooth and the x-rays.

I find the most useful question to ask your dentist when you're unsure about making a decision about your treatment is this: "What would you do if it was your own tooth?" ?

She Would Only Do A Filling.. I Asked About A Crown & She Said If She Did A Crown Then I Would Need An Extraction In The End Anyway.. Not Too Sure If Thats Correct Because I Thought That A Crown Was To Protect The Tooth & Prevent An Extraction.. xx

I can move this into the "Ask a Dentist" section to get a more accurate and reliable answer if you like?
