|Endocrown- A Mono-Block Porcelain Technique|
The restoration of endodontically treated teeth (ETT) is a topic that is extensively studied and yet remains controversial from many perspectives. Restoration of ETT with extensive coronal loss follows a strict protocol as suitable surface and coronal structure are limited for adhesion. Hence, the prognosis becomes a bit questionable. Its at this point that a clinician question whether its better to preserve the tooth or extract and go for an implant. The purpose of this study is to introduce another modality for treatment i.e. Endocrown by studying two cases with minimal tooth structure in which endocrown was favoured over traditional post and core and crown. Key words: Endocrown, Monoblock, Porcelain, Endodontically treated teeth.
