Publication Date



In spite of a large number of in-vitro and in-vivo reports, it is still unclear regarding the ideal restoration of endodontically treated teeth, which requires comprehensive knowledge of dental science, materials science and principles of mechanical engineering, including biomechanics. With the advantage of digital technology, CAD/CAM technology offers high precision restorations with less time consuming and an ability of processing high-strength ceramic such as zirconia, which provides both high esthetics and strength. The review focuses on current knowledge regarding the post and core system, classification of ceramics, CAD/CAM workflow for manufacturing the post and core system and pre-clinical testing of ceramics including bond strength testing and finite element analysis.
