Customizing the prefabricated fiber post to direct anatomic post possesses advantages of intimate adaptation of the cast metal post and similar modulus of elasticity of prefabricated fiber post, thus optimizing the properties of both. This report presents the case of a 30-year-old female patient with a grossly decayed upper right central incisor having a history of intermittent pain and swelling since 2 weeks. Patient presented with a history of trauma 2 years back and recurring sinus formation since 6 months. A diagnosis of chronic periapical abscess was established and the endodontic treatment followed by direct anatomic post and crown were recommended for the affected tooth. One year conclusive outcome of the presented case highlights that customizing the prefabricated fiber post is relatively simple, minimally invasive and requires only few additional steps in single appointment beyond those needed to lute a prefabricated fiber post.
