Discolouration– Occasionally, an endodontically treated tooth may undergo a change in colour. While this is of no great medical concern, you may be interested in having the tooth bleached. Be sure to ask your dentist about tooth bleaching.
Brittleness– A non-vital (endodontically treated) tooth is more brittle than a vital one, and is more susceptible to fracture. Therefore, we recommend that your root canal teeth be crowned (capped) following treatment.
