The incidence of maxillary anteriors being injured during any assault to the facial region is nearly 37% owing to its position in the arch. Treatment planning always depends on the clinical scenario. Coronal fracture of teeth involving the pulp may need conventional endodontic treatment and aesthetic reconstruction. When there is not enough tooth structure to retain a crown, it may often need post–core to retain final post endodontic restoration. Various types and advancements of post-and-core systems have been documented in the literature over the years, with an excellent long-term prognosis. Although the traditional custom cast post-and-core system has been considered to be cumbersome and time-consuming, it has an added advantage of allowing modification in the angle of insertion and the position of the core to obtain optimal aesthetics. This case report presents the successful management with aesthetic rehabilitation of a fractured maxillary central incisor with customized computer-aided design–computer-aided manufacturing zirconia post–core and crown
