Options for a short tooth after root canal treatment?
Doctor Answers 1
Short, dark tooth
The option I recommend for your short, dark tooth is a "Lava" crown. This has no metal, but a zirconia core to cover and mask the darkness underneath the porcelain. If your tooth is very dark, a veneer will not mask all of the darkness. I have done many cases this way and had excellent results.
