Root canal treatment is said to be completely successful when the tooth is restored and comes back to normal function. A more complex restoration is required after endodontic treatment when compared to normal tooth restoration, because of factors such as extensive caries, post-treatment root canal dentin and even the economics condition of the patient. With the availability of newer high strength materials like lithium disilicate dentists are now able to offer better esthetics and high strength restoration which withstands heavy occlusal forces with even thin layers. Thus, the aim of this case series is to summarize the recent advances of post endodontic restorations, various new materials their indications depending on the remaining tooth structure and the teeth that needs to be restored.
