A filling and crown are required to add strength to the tooth and complete the case. Root canal treated teeth may become somewhat brittle and subject to cracking or fracturing. Unfortunately, “hairline” cracks can be invisible and undetectable. Placing a crown on the tooth is the best prevention to avoid cracking and fracturing of the tooth. We recommend you do this as soon as possible. In circumstances where your dentist will be performing these procedures, a temporary filling is placed to maintain the coronal seal. We are happy to comply with this request and provide you this service at no charge.
We also are experts at restoring the endodontically involved tooth. We follow and comply with the guidelines set forth by our governing body, The American Association of Endodontics, AAE. These treatments or recommendations may include temporary/provisional restoration; core, post and core/build-up orthodontic band; and a provisional crown.
