A veneer is a porcelain restoration covering the front of a tooth. When a veneered tooth is in need of root canal therapy, the endodontist will make an access point on the back side of the tooth then seal with a filling. The endodontist will not need to drill through your veneer. I hope this helps. Click "save" under my name to follow me on RealSelf and ask more questions.
Can a endontist do a root canal through a veneer?
