Abstract

An in vitro study was performed evaluating three post and core techniques with and without full crown coverage on extracted mandibular molar teeth. The materials evaluated were amalgam, composite resin, and stainless steel posts, and a combination of cast-gold and stainless steel posts. The results indicate that the method of post and core technique may not be as significant as the placement of full coverage cast-gold crown restorations with sound design and placement of margins beyond the buildup restoration.
