Sometimes, due to decay, fractures, or a number of other reasons, a tooth may be damaged to the extent that the root is harmed. That’s where a post and core come in.
A post and core is a dental restoration used to build-up the tooth structure for future restoration with a crown. The post is a miniature toothpick-like structure that gives the tooth its foundation, and the core is used to anchor the cap or crown.
At Robert A. Dreelin, D.D.S., we are experienced in and up-to-date on all the latest post and core methods. Our dentists frequently perform both prefabricated and cast post and cores in a variety of designs, so you can count on having your post and core put in by a professional.
If you think you may be a good candidate for post and core treatment or have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, please contact us today.
