Dentist wants to cap my 5 y.o. kid's teeth under general anesthesia. Anyone with experience or knowledge of this? How did it work out?

After 2 years of no-problem-at-all regular dental checkups, suddenly all hell has apparently broken loose with my kid's teeth and the dentist wants to cap a bunch of them, partly because fillings might need future work, and partly as a preventative for any further decay. I'm just wondering if anyone else out there has done this, and how it went. We need to decide between caps and fillings. Thanks for any info you can give me!
