#Veneers or #crowns for teeth with root canals #DrSoftTouch
Whether you dentist recommends a veneer or crown for your teeth with root canals depends on several factors. I usually recommend a crown for a root canaled tooth. However, there are cases where the tooth is in perfect shape, the root canal treatment was performed conservatively and the access hole is small, and enough sound tooth structure remains making a veneer a great option. You dentist is correct that a veneer will strengthen your root canaled teeth. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
