Prefabricated Post and Core with Crown

Pasadena, Deer Park Texas Dentist: Post and Core

When a tooth is missing most of its tooth structure then a Post and Core is performed prior to the crown placement. The post is cemented inside the tooth root. Then filling material is bonded to the tooth and post to recreate the bulk of the tooth. The post helps to hold the foundation in place. Then the crown is placed over the tooth.
