CORE BUILD UPS

A core build-up is necessary before crowning teeth that have been significantly damaged due to decay or fracture.

DEFINITION

Dental core build-upA core build up is used when teeth are built up because their foundation is insufficient.

This procedure provides this support and effectively replaces the original shape of the tooth so that it will be easier to later design a crown for it.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT

The preparation of the tooth and placement of a core build-up is similar to that of a filling.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

After a core build-up is done, the tooth structure may still be prone to fracturing. It is therefore important that the tooth is crowned to provide additional structure and support.
