Restoration of endodontically treated teeth is important for maintaining normal tooth function, prevention of fracture of residual tooth and prevention of dental caries. Fort that, an extensive literature search of the Medline, Cochrane, and EMBASE databases using the medical subject headings (MeSH) terms; has been conducted. Papers discussing restoration of endodontically treated teeth were screened for relevant information. There were no limits on date, language, age of participants or publication type. The seek for the restoration of endodontically treated teeth has remarkably increased with the subsequent increase of survival rates up to 80% after 10 years of follow up. Controlling the causes of restoration failure constitutes the major issue in decreasing failure rates among different age groups. Metal ceramic crowns are the most common restorative type in both anterior and posterior teeth. Selecting the proper time for restoration is important and should be based upon the clinical status of each patient.
