Once the tooth is built up, we can place a crown to preserve the tooth for years to come. Sometimes a Core Buildup is necessary after Root Canal Treatment has been done on a tooth. Once again this procedure is required to build up the material of the tooth so that a crown can be placed.
What happens when you get a permanent crown?
At the second visit, the permanent crown is placed on your tooth. First, the temporary crown is removed and the fit and color of the permanent crown is checked. If everything is okay, a local anesthetic (“numbing” drug) is sometimes used to numb the tooth and the new crown is permanently cemented in place.
