Six months ago, I had a root canal done on one of my bottom central incisors. For the past few weeks, the other central incisor started to hurt as well. I went to a new dentist who said I needed a root canal on this tooth as it was abscessed.
After the procedure, he said I needed crowns on both my bottom central incisors. The first dentist who performed a canal on the tooth didn’t put a crown on it; he only filled in the tiny hole with cement.
Is it necessary to file down these teeth and put crowns on them? Will they stay strong without crowns? This is going to be expensive and I wanted to be sure that I really need them. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
