Use of a bondable reinforcement fiber for post-and-core buildup in an endodontically treated tooth: A case report
Eskitascioglu, Gürcan / Belli, Sema
The restoration for an endodontically treated tooth should be conservative and should not increase horizontal and vertical forces. A recently developed bondable reinforcement fiber is reported to be an alternative to conventional post materials because of its esthetic qualities, mechanical properties, and the neutral color of the reinforcing material. This article describes the treatment of one patient, in whom a bondable polyethylene ribbon was used as a post-and-core build-up material.
