Consultant Tip: What to Say When a Patient Wants a Filling Instead of a Crown

11/3/2014 12:50:20 PM   |   Comments: 0   |   Views: 472
It's not uncommon that a patient asks if you can do something less expensive than a crown or asks if you can put in a filling instead.

Solution:

Tell him you certainly can and that you can put a filling in practically anything. Let him know you are not worried about the filling, but that you are worried about the tooth. Tell him you are concerned about the tooth lasting and the crown has the best chance of preserving it. "We will be glad to put a filling in, but I don't think you want to do that."
