It depends. Most often, the filling below the crown has to be removed and a new filling and crown are needed—if there is enough tooth structure left to make a new crown. Occasionally, a cavity under a crown can be patched/repaired without removing the entire crown. If the tooth below the crown is completely broken/split, the whole tooth may need to be removed/extracted.
