So I'm a bit confused. I had a root canal done today and also the gum around the tooth has been sealed and sewn to prevent infection I think. Do I still have to go in for a permanent filling or crown? My tooth currently does not look like a normal tooth lol It's grey right now and isn't smooth like a tooth should be. i had a root canal because i had an accident a loooong time ago where the root was damaged and has slowly been decaying away. I have dental anxiety and I'm just worried about going in again for a second appointment. Will it take long? Do I need a crown? Or a filling?
