Restoring a endodontically treated teeth may present a restorative problem, due to common inadequate sound coronal and radicular tooth structure. The flared apices of canal anatomy makes complete debridement and control of the obturation material nearly impossible. Apexification is a method of inducing a calcified barrier at the apex of a nonvital tooth with incomplete root formation. MTA appeared to be a valid option for apexification with the added advantage of speed of completion of therapy. Most endodontically treated teeth today are restored with adhesive materials. Adhesive materials provide an immediate seal and some immediate strengthening of the tooth. The canal can be reinforced using a fiber post system involving intraradicular rehabilitation using composite resin. This article presents a clinical case with fractured anterior tooth with a short root and open apex reinforced intraradicular with composite and a light transmitting fiber post.
