Objectives Restoration of severely damaged endodontically treated anterior teeth typically poses a challenge. Specific indication of post-retained restorations in such teeth has reasonably been questioned because of the potential tooth structure weakening. The present study aimed to describe a modified conservative endocrown (modified refers to intracanal extension while conservative refers to preparation at the finish line) to rehabilitate severely damaged anterior teeth.
Case: Endodontically treated lower right central incisor had inadequate remaining tooth structure and restored by endocrwn restoration as a definitive treatment and followed for 30 month.
Conclusion Considering the clinical outcome after 30 months of follow-up, it seems that this specific type of endocrown could efficiently serve as a conservative treatment approach to restore endodontically treated anterior teeth.
