Case Description: This is a case treated by direct-indirect form, evaluating the possibility to rehabilitate the central incisal, giving back function and harmony, and matching the centrals. The amount of dental tissue and the leakage presented when removing the restoration was considered. The restorative work would include crown and post removal, ?berglass and core buildup reconstruction, and crown placement. Treatment was carried out using the best materials on the dental market, including those from BISCO.
