This paper highlights the fact that many anterior teeth requiring restoration are severely weakened, having wide flared canal spaces and thin dentinal walls, and are at a high risk of getting fractured. Traditionally, such teeth would be restored using metal posts, but this procedure has often been unsuccessful, because of lack of retention or root fracture. The canal can be reinforced using a new post system involving intraradicular composite resin polymerization with light transmitting posts, rendering the defective endodontically treated root capable of supporting a post and core, and thereby ensuring continued function of the badly damaged tooth.
