Combined crown and post-and-core treatment often requires multiple intermittent appointments and takes a long time. This article describes a novel method for simultaneously fabricating a custom glass fiber post-and-core and the corresponding crown.

The fully digital workflow optimizes the treatment and saves time by accomplishing restorations on the first visit.
