Metal Endocrown – Novel Restorative option for Mutilated teeth; A Case Report
Extensively damaged endodontically treated molars pose a constant challenge for the practitioner. Although the classical post and core restoration is widely used in dentistry, its invasiveness has been criticized worldwide. Minimally invasive crown preparation preserving the maximum amount of tooth structure is considered to be the main objective for restoring teeth. Bindl and Mormann described the concept of endocrown in 1999 to limit the use of root anchorages. This case report illustrates this restorative option for functional rehabilitation of a devitalized mandibular molar, presenting with a small amount of remaining coronal tooth structure.
