Endocrown

All Ceramics Endocrown is a restoration that reproduces the entire surface anatomy of the clinical crown and other lost structure of an endodontically treated tooth. It is fabricated from a “porcelain” block via CAD CAM as a core build up and crown restoration in one piece. Endocrown is desirable in the case of thin walls of coronal structure, substantial loss of tooth tissue and esthetic demands.

Advantages
1. Superior strength.
2. Esthetically pleasing.
3. Conservation of remaining tooth structure.
4. If retreatment is necessary, the removal of such crown is easy.

Disadvantages
1. Long term clinical results are needed.

A ferrule of 1.5 mm – 2mm should be established to protect the tooth from fracture.

Resin cement is required for adhesive luting of ceramic endocrown. On using resin cements, the manufacturer’s instruction must be carefully followed.
