The introduction of fiber posts has a great impact on the clinical procedures on restoring endodontically treated teeth. Endodontically treated teeth with severe coronal destruction have been a very common clinical procedure in the restorative clinical practice. This translucent fiber post is covered by a layer of light cured resin which allows for an individual anatomical modelling of the post through its insertion in root canal with the aim of achieving a better adaptation, retention. In this way, the combination of two restorative materials (compound resin and post) will serve and behave biomechanically as a replacement for the lost dentin structure. The aim of this clinical case report is to exhibit the preparation of anatomical post by using composite resin and fiber-glass posts on upper right central incisor with weakened root, with the objective of reinstate the coronal portion of the tooth.

Keywords: Glass fiber post, Anatomic post, Post and core, Adaptation, Retention.
