Historically, materials available for a core buildup prior to crown placement have possessed both advantages and disadvantages. In some cases, as with glass ionomer, the number of disadvantages is equivalent to its benefits, and although amalgam has been relied upon for years as a core build-up material, research indicates that its drawbacks are outweighed by its assets.5-8 As a solution, composite resins are becoming a popular choice as a core build-up material for endodontically treated teeth. This article demonstrates the use of a bulk-fill composite resin and how its many advantages allow the clinician to complete two different types of procedures in one visit.
