Dental insurance reimbursement for core buildups is often challenging. Dental offices and dental billing companies must be up to date with CDT codes and payer guidelines to ensure accurate claim submission.

Dental core build-up is a restorative procedure where the missing portion of the tooth is restored with dental filling material in order to support the crown restoration. The core build-up rebuilds the internal anatomy of the tooth structure as prepared for a crown. A certain amount of supporting tooth structure has to be present to support a dental crown so it can perform successfully over the long term. The rebuilding process is done with a filling material which is called a core buildup. A core build-up must be necessary for crown retention to be considered a build-up.
