If the doctor has a tooth with a large amount of decay (or a big leaky filling, etc) and once the decay/filling/etc. is removed – the tooth no longer has enough structure to support a crown and the doctor uses material to “build” the tooth back up… shouldn’t this be filed as D2950 Core Buildup, Including Any Pins in addition to the crown code?
