A technique using a "mushroom shaped" composite resin short post constructed inside the pulp-treated root canal provides sufficient retention to build a composite resin crown on the reinforced superstructure of the remaining crown dentin. This technique was tested for 1 year in 92 teeth; they showed no failures of retention of the short post. Recurrent caries and severe bruxism--factors beyond operator control--posed some problems that were readily resolved.
