"Patients ask me sometimes if I can just put a filling on where tooth is broken. I understand that there's big difference in price between crown and regular filling and I try my best to repair the tooth with regular filling if I can. However, the remaining tooth may break further if I just put a filling where there's not enough tooth structure left to hold the filling. I do full exam, take intra oral photograph to show patients what they need. I don't force patients into certain procedures but I present all the possible treatment options to patients and have them choose one with my guidance.
I also bought 3 D digital scanner for better fitting crown. Patients don't have to bite onto uncomfortable impression materials. And if something happens to the models lab created, they can always re create the crown from digitally store 3 D impression."
