A variety of post systems, from metal to ceramics are available for the post-endodontic management of severely fractured teeth. The reinforcement of the composite resins by fibers improves their fracture toughness and resistance. The Fiber reinforced composite resin can be a good alternative to conventional post systems. The purpose of this article was to present a clinical case of fractured anterior teeth where fiber reinforced composite was used for the intraradicular rehabilitation of an endodontically treated tooth as well as extraradicular rehabilitation of a fractured tooth. This technique offers a conservative, esthetic and non-invasive treatment. Moreover this technique is economically more acceptable. The polyethylene FRC post and core can serve as a long-lasting provisional treatment in pediatric cases where the growth is not completed yet, or as a permanent treatment option in older patients.
