Post and Core

A ‘post and core’ (colloquially known as a ‘post’ or ‘dental post’) is a type of dental restoration used either to stabilise a weakened tooth or to provide an anchor for a crown.
Andent’s posts are mostly manufactured using cobalt chrome.
If we are manufacturing an all-ceramic crown to be placed on top of the post/core, we will make the structure opaque to mask the grey appearance of the metal.
