A Buildup is used when a fracture or decay causes a portion of a tooth to break off, and in some cases, there’s simply not enough tooth left to place a crown. A Buildup will replace the missing portion and save the tooth by building it up with Buildup Resin materials.
A build-up may become necessary, and you should always consult your dentist to see if this procedure is right for you. Having cracked or decayed teeth is always a concern for your oral and physical health.
