A custom-cast post and core is recommended when the remaining tooth structure is compromised and an insufficient ferrule is present.

The patient presented with bilateral severely carious premolars with pulpal necrosis. The treatment plan included endodontic treatment followed by custom-cast posts and cores with PFM crowns.
