Core-Post is ideal for core buildups in single-tooth restorations. Since it flexes like natural tooth structure, it dramatically minimizes tooth stress and fractures that occur with standard metal posts. With a coefficient of thermal expansion and modulus of elasticity nearly identical to dentin, Core-Post’s exceptional physical properties are key to its strength and compatibility with cement, dentin, and core. It’s radiopaque, easy to cut and use, and available in both carbon fiber for increased posterior strength and tooth-colored glass fiber for anterior aesthetics. Both carbon fiber and glass fiber Core-Posts are available in 5 diameters: 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, and 2.0 mm. Core-Post is offered in a value kit, which includes 5 posts of each size as well as an intro kit containing 2 carbon posts and 2 glass posts in the one- and 1.5-mm sizes.
