Here's my tooth after the root canal, but before its temporary crown. The roots have been drilled out and filled with putty. The middle is mostly empty, but has some flecks of metal debris left over from the amalgam fillings. The top is stuffed with something temporary just to keep objects out. I was warned not to use the tooth for chewing until it had a crown or it would shatter, just like in all those awful dreams.
