Crown, Veneer, Onlay, Inlay, or Combination - for Hollowed out Vertical Decayed Half Premolar? (photo)
Save or Chop off Top of Tooth? I've read 1mm is minimum width of porcelain. My tooth appears hollowed out. Better to chop off top of tooth for crown or to retain existing half tooth from top to bottom? Seems to leave so little tooth to place a cap / crown. Also filling to be removed. Of course enamel isn't thick to start with, and crowns are done all the time. Still I wonder if using the tooth hollow for buildup could actually aid strength, then the top is done as an inlay, and backside all porcelain top to gum line.
