Prefabricated glass fiber posts are widely used; however, their shape cannot be changed and they can be unsuitable for severely damaged teeth with wide root canals. This clinical report describes a procedure for restoring a severely damaged anterior tooth with a customized 1-piece glass fiber post and core, fabricated using a CAD/CAM system. This 1-piece glass fiber post and core adapts better to the root canal than a prefabricated glass fiber post, and reduces the cement layer thickness. Furthermore, it does not require the use of a composite resin foundation.
