      Default building up of tooth

      I had a root canal a few years ago and I lost the crown which needs to be replaced, the
      dentist said she needs to do a build up of the tooth first , what does this mean and should I require anesthesia for this????

      A build up is just some plastic bonded into the tooth to provide a more "ideal" shape for the crown to fit onto. You probably don't need local for it, since there's no nerve supply to the tooth any more.
      Despite appearances to the contrary, Gordon has been a qualified dentist for over thirty years.
