The restoration of pulpally treated teeth is critical for the longitudinal success of maintaining the teeth within the oral cavity. There are a number of factors when choosing a restoration following pulp therapy such as the position of the tooth within the dental arch, which dictates the masticatory forces expected, as well as esthetics desired upon final restoration. The amount of tooth structure remaining after caries removal is important, and the clinician must remember that the clinical crown of the tooth becomes much more brittle after pulp therapy.
