Without : Without an exam and a radiograph, it is tough to tell how large that restoration is. Molars take the brunt of your biting force, and it may very well be that the tooth needs a stronger restoration to help protect it and absorb those biting forces. It is possible that the tooth would benefit from an onlay or a full coverage crown. Yes, those restorations will be more expensive than the filling, but will also last much longer. It could also be that you have a "plunger cusp" in the opposite arch that exerts excessive force on one small area of that restoration, causing it to crack often. Smoothing that point down goes a long way in minimizing the trauma on that filling. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
