Abstract

The successful treatment of teeth with substantial damage to the tooth structure not only depends on good endodontic treatment, but also by prompt prosthodontic reconstruction of the tooth after the completion of the same. The primary purpose of the post is to retain a core that can be used to retain a definitive prosthesis. A post and core helps to prevent fracture when the remaining tooth structure is very less. When a large amount of tooth structure is lost, a custom cast post and core is indicated. The following case reports depict the interdisciplinary approach to restore function and aesthetic of severely damaged treated teeth by means of full veneer crowns after custom cast post. Coordinated by prosthetic, endodontic treatments with careful consideration of patient’s expectations and requirements were critical for a successful outcome & patient satisfaction.
