The present clinical study evaluates the clinical prognosis of Cerec®3D endocrowns over an observation period of two years. Twenty Cerec® endocrowns (VITABLOCS® Mark II, Vita Zahnfabirk, Bad Säckingen, Germany) were placed with PanaviaTM F 2.0, a dual-curing bonding composite. The control examinations took place semiannually and the restorations were evaluated based on modified US Public Health Service criteria (USPHS). The two-year survival rate of the Cerec® endocrowns was 90%. Two out of 20 endocrowns were assessed as failure because of fractures. The first fracture was observed after 12 months and the second fracture after 18 months. No recurrent caries was diagnosed during the entire examination period. Slight percussion symptoms were found on three restorations in the first weeks after placement. The results of the present study show that good esthetic and functional results similar to those of other restoration types can be achieved with endocrowns and that CAD/CAM-fabricated crowns represent a very promising treatment alternative for endodontically treated molars. Keywords: CAD/CAM, Cerec system, endocrowns
