Endo-crown – Endocrown

All Ceramic Endo-crown

All Ceramic Endo-crown is a restoration that reproduces the entire surface anatomy of the clinical crown and other lost structure of an endodontically treated tooth. It is milled from a ceramic block via CAD CAM system as a core build up and crown restoration in one piece. Endocrown is desirable in the case of root canal treated tooth with thin walls of coronal structure and substantial loss of tooth tissue. It is esthetically pleasing.

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

Disadvantages
1. Long term clinical results are needed.

In the tooth preparation, a ferrule of 1.5 mm – 2mm should be established to protect the tooth from fracture.

Dual-cure resin cement is required for adhesive luting of ceramic endo-crown. On using resin cements, the manufacturer’s instruction must be carefully followed.

    This type of dental crown is very conservative for root canal treated tooth. Nice photo by the way.
