The goal of restorative dentistry and endodontics is to retain the natural teeth with maximal function and pleasing esthetics. It is generally agreed that the successful treatment of a badly broken tooth with pulpal disease depends not only on endodontic therapy but also on good prosthetic reconstruction of the tooth following endodontic therapy. Various methods are available for the same, but a good intraoral examination is of utmost importance on deciding the treatment plan and choosing between direct and indirect restoration. The aim of this article is to discuss cases of grossly mutilated endodontically treated teeth (ETT) which need esthetic and functional rehabilitation by the use of indirect intraradicular devices. ETT with excessive loss of coronal tooth structure of more than 75% and fractured teeth which require a change in angulation of the teeth can be restored with a customized post and core to enhance the strength and durability of the tooth and to achieve retention and esthetics of the restoration.
