The physical properties of Core-Post are matched with tooth structure and designed to flex with teeth under normal conditions. Ideal for single-tooth post restoration, it eliminates tooth stress and fractures that can occur with standard metal posts. Its modulus of elasticity is similar to dentin with physiochemical compatibility between post, cement, dentin, and core. In addition to exhibiting exceptional physical properties, it is radiopaque and easy to cut and use. Carbon fiber posts for posterior strength and glass fiber posts for anterior aesthetics are available in 5 diameters: 1, 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, and 2.0 mm.
