After root-canal therapy the teeth need to be restored properly.

If only a small amount of tooth structure has been removed , teeth can be restored using bonded composites, preventing recontamination of the tooth with bacteria.

Tooth-colored post and cores made out of Zirconia


Pre-final restoration with a Zirconia-post
