Restoration of anterior esthetic zone is a challenge to the restorative dentist. It is more challenging when it presents with insufficient tooth structure. Crown lengthening procedures or orthodontic extrusion can be employed to restore such cases. The aim of this paper is to present the rehabilitation of an anterior tooth with insufficient tooth structure in a medically compromised patient. An interdisciplinary approach was employed wherein a customized cast post and core with a hook was fabricated for facilitating orthodontic extrusion.
