The restoration of an endodontically treated tooth with minimal loss of tooth structure left behind is a challenging task for a clinician. The use of post and core was widely followed, but in cases of a short clinical crown its use was not recommended. The use of adhesive principle to restore a badly broken down tooth along with a monoblock concept has shown better outcome. Endocrown is a monolithic ceramic adhesive restoration with a cervical margin in the form of a butt joint and requires other specific preparation techniques. The preparation of an endocrown usually does not extend to any of the root canals except for its modification.
