Rehabilitating extensively mutilated posterior teeth after endodontic treatment still remains to be a challenge. Several treatment modalities has been established to restore the function of grossly mutilated endodontically treated teeth. Among such restorations, endocrowns are indirect monobloc crowns that engage the core space for retention. They are more conservative alternative than the use of intraradicular post as a means to increase the retention of crown to the core. In this case report, two cases are discussed in which single posterior endocrowns were fabricated after the endodontic treatment in the teeth with compromised tooth structure. One case with CAD manufacturing of lithium disilicate (IPS e.max CAD) molar endocrown and another case with the fabrication of metal ceramic molar endocrown.

Keywords: Endocrown, Grossly mutilated tooth, Post endodontic restoration.
