Materials selection is the second in the series on crowns and other extra-coronal restorations. Some of us are less than inspired by dental materials science. Restoration of an anterior root-filled tooth with little remaining coronal tooth-tissue can use a post to retain a core enabling definitive restoration. Fiber posts present good biomechanical behavior because of their elastic modulus. It is similar to that of dentine. Treatment failure occurs through decementation rather than because of root fracture as it occurs with metal posts.
In this article, a 25-year female patient was referred to our department of fixed prosthodontics for an esthetically compromised smile due to severely decayed central incisors and she requested esthetic smile rehabilitation. The two incisors were restored with fiber post composite and CAD/CAM zirconia based ceramic crowns as extra-coronal restoration.
