Abstract

The esthetic restoration of anterior root canal-treated teeth with significant loss of tooth structure is a challenging clinical situation. For younger patients or for patients requiring interim treatment plans, restoring badly broken-down anterior teeth with composite resin provides an expedient and esthetic solution. Current visible-light-activated composite resin materials require an incremental build-up to ensure adequate depth of cure. With the use of custom-contoured, stabilized, thin crown forms and strategically placed vent holes, the clinician can efficiently provide cost-effective direct composite resin restorations that meet the patients' esthetic needs.
