Abstract

The long term prognosis of an endodontically treated tooth depends on the strength of the remaining tooth structure and the prosthetic restoration of the same. The use of aesthetic materials becomes mandatory while restoring the teeth in the aesthetic zone. A restoration of an anterior tooth with Glass fibre post, along with dual cure composite core followed by a Lithium Disilicate crown is presented. The restoration addressed the patient’s chief complaint of a broken and ugly anterior tooth while preserving maximum remaining tooth structure and achieving optimum aesthetic results. This allowed a smooth transition from an unaesthetic, fractured tooth to an interim restoration in a single appointment, followed by the definitive metal free crown on a subsequent date.
