Objectives: The Endocrown consists of a circular equigingival butt-joint margin and a central retention cavity
of the entire pulp chamber, instead of intracanalicular posts. It is placed into the chamber and 2mm or 4mm
into each canal space.
Method & Materials: In a 32 year old woman, with old restorations of amalgam in two lower molars, both with secondary decay, Endocrowns should be taken as a conservative alternative of restoration due to the quantity of remaining tissue in both teeth, that can be appreciate in the clinical evaluation. After removing the temporal material, it was realized how many remaining dental structures were available to conserve and was possible to initiate the preparations.
Results: Due to the conservative procedure some of the remaining tooth structure could be used for retention; due to the material that was used, a more natural shape appearance could be obtained; and finally, taking advantage of adhesive techniques, risks of gaps, secondary decays and failures were avoided, so we could have restorations that could be successful in terms of aesthetics and longevity.
Conclusions: Researcher’s interest to increase the scientific knowledge about this subject, because it could represent an interesting, conservative and secure procedure. They recommended as a real restorative possibility for endodontically treated teeth.
