Endodontically treated teeth (ETT) are structurally and esthetically compromised. Conventionally, after endodontic therapy, the tooth is restored with full-coverage crowns to improve their fracture resistance and ensure their long-term success rate. However, the tooth preparation required for these restorations can result in the significant loss of enamel and dentin. The periodontal health will be affected if the margin of prosthesis is extended subgingival. Restoring ETT using minimally invasive methods is an effective way to preserve the remaining tooth structure. This case series show cases restoration of four endodontically treated mandibular first molars with extensive subgingival caries restored with short fiber-reinforced composite resin (everX Posterior, GC Europe N.V. Interleuvenlaan, Leuven), with 2-year follow-up.
