Crown Vs Filling – What’s the Difference?

Frequently I’m asked the question “why does my tooth need a crown and not a filling”. To answer the crown vs filling question we must drop back a little. Most people know about tooth decay, which is the most common reason I have to work on a tooth, we remove it and fill it, providing we have enough tooth and no cracks, which is the second most common reason I work on a tooth. The enamel or outside of a tooth is extremely hard but very brittle, kind of like glass. The inside of a tooth is Dentin which is like a honeycomb that isn’t so hard but supports the enamel. There must be enough of both or the tooth itself starts to fracture. The fracture can be difficult to deal with because it’s like a crack in your windshield… it usually starts small then gets bigger with time.
