Brief Answer:
Yes, it could be saved but only strength reduces

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing in.

It is not important how many fillings are done in same tooth, rather what matters is how the filling is done & its strength.
If tooth is RCT treated its better to go for capping rather than filling.In case tooth is non- rct treated it could be treated by filling only.Choice of material for filling depends on size & location of cavity.

Visit your dentist for further treatment plan.

Hope I answered your query

Wishing you good health
