A core buildup is also used in some cases, this is a composit resin material added to the tooth to enlarge the tooth size and strengthen the tooth. The tooth is non vital after a root canal and it can be weaker than a healthy tooth. Just because it no longer hurts after a root canal is not a reason to put of finishing treatment it is important to have the post, core and crown put in place. If the crown is not in place it is much more likely that the tooth will fracture and have to be extracted.
Dynamic Dental uses CEREC 3D CAD CAM technology and can create the crown in just one visit. This makes the procedure far more comfortable and saves the patient time.
