Why Can’t I Have Just a Filling?

//Why Can’t I Have Just a Filling?

This video outlines why crowns are more effective than fillings.

Common questions patients ask are “why can’t I have just a filling?” and “why does it have to be a crown?” In this video, Dr. Nawrocki unpacks it all. In a nutshell, fillings aren’t as effective especially in cases where there is extensive damage. Additionally, with fillings, you risk having a buildup of bacteria, which can cause infections and other diseases. Overall, crowns are a more ideal choice. Crowns are much more effective at protecting the tooth and preventing infections. And what’s more, they can do so for up to 25 years.
