Crown & Bridge

Dental crowns are essential for reinforcing teeth post-root canal. After a root canal, a permanent filling called a “core” is placed in the tooth, possibly with a reinforcing “post.” Due to the increased vulnerability of root canal-treated teeth, a crown is crucial for added strength and protection. Unlike fillings, crowns fully cover the visible part of the tooth, becoming its new outer surface. This shields the tooth, preventing breakage and enabling normal functioning in the mouth for long-term durability.


Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, fillings are dental restorations that fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. It holds the tooth and protects it from fracture and functions as a normal tooth in the mouth

After your root canal procedure is completed, the next step is to place a permanent filling in the tooth which is called a “core”. You may or may not need a “post” in the tooth, which is a small pin that is placed for durability and strength.

 A tooth that has had a root canal is a weaker, more brittle tooth. It can break and fracture easier than any other tooth in the mouth. Because of this it is very important to also place a crown (cap) on the tooth to make it a stronger tooth that can function normally in the mouth and can serve you for a long time.
