Last Sunday, my doctor placed a tooth colored filling on my more than half broken front tooth. Instead of filling only the broken part, he filled my whole tooth with tooth colored filling. I want to know that why he did so? He should fill only the missing structure.
Why Did My Doctor Place A Tooth Colored Filling On My Broken Tooth?

Why did my dentist fill the whole tooth?
You should ask him... but many time we fill the whole tooth so you don't a filling thats 10yrs old and another filling 1 day old good luck
