Should a tooth that had a root canal 40 yrs ago be crowned or veneered?

Veneer or crown? #DrSoftTouch
Both a veneer and crown can be placed on a tooth that has had a root canal. As a general rule, full crowns are recommended following root canal therapy to protect the tooth from fracture. However for front teeth, a veneer may be possible, depending on the tooth itself and how much of tooth structure is remaining. Good luck and I hope this helps.
