Abstract: The present study was planned to evaluate the performance between different types of crowns and composite restoration. Those restorations were used for ETT in maxillary anterior teeth, after a glass-fibre post with composite resin core builds up. The present study was planned in the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Buddha Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Patna. The 20 cases of maxillary anterior endodontically treated teeth (ETT). The roots were restored with reinforced GFPs (Relaxy Fiber Post, 3M ESPE, Germany), and composite resin cores (Tertic-N-Ceramic, Ivoclar Vivadent, Lichenestine). The 50 ETTs were divided into four groups depend on the crown type or the final restoration. Selection of the most suitable post and core systems is challenging and should be guided by knowledge of their indications, advantages and disadvantages, as well as the amount and quality of remaining tooth structure and aesthetic requirements. The data generated from the present findings concludes that E max and zirconia crowns have a higher success comparing to other groups. While PFM crowns and composite restorations were associated with colour changes and inflammation of the free gingiva.
