There is a point at which it becomes a waste of time and resources to keep patching up the same potholes in a road. Eventually a new layer of blacktop is going to be the best long term solution- your tires and suspension will be happier for it. Your teeth are the same way; more filling than natural tooth leads to unsupported tooth structure which will eventually fracture, potentially leading to a root canal or worse, loss of the tooth. In some cases an indirect restoration may be indicated. An indirect restoration also tends to be a lot stronger as they may be subjected to intense heat and pressure to create an extremely hard ceramic material, in some cases many times stronger than the tooth itself. As a result, such restorations may be used to strengthen remaining natural tooth structure by surrounding it in the form of a crown (or a cap as a crown is sometimes referred to).
