Endocrown restorations are single prostheses that are made of reinforced ceramics and may be acid etched; they are recommended for endodontically treated molar teeth that have suffered a considerable loss of coronal structure. In order to provide a strong foundation for the restoration and strengthen the restored tooth structurally, the quality and integrity of the residual tooth structure should be carefully preserved. For this reason, Endocrown is used as a minimally invasive technique. Endocrowns are particularly recommended for molars with short, destroyed, dilacerated, or unstable roots. They may also be utilized when it is unable to achieve an acceptable thickness of the ceramic coating on the metal or ceramic substructures due to significant coronal dental tissue loss and constrained interocclusal space. Endocrowns provide a more beneficial choice than conventional and post- and core-retained restorations because of the little and simple preparation required. This favorable outcome can be attributable to a number of variables, including the preparation method, occlusal thickness, and elastic moduli. When it comes to material selection it is impossible to create what is called the material of choice since new material is constantly being introduced.
