Abstract: To evaluate the fracture strength of endodontically treated teeth with reduced coronal structure reinforced with glass-fiber posts and cast posts and core (nickel-chromium alloy) with different thickness. Forty maxillary central incisors were sectioned at 1 mm of the cementoenamel junction and endodontically treated. The teeth were divided into four groups (n = 10) and restored with cast post and core and glass-fiber posts with diameters of 1.5 mm and 1.1 mm. The fracture strength was evaluated using a Universal Testing Machine (Instron 1144) at 45° of angulation. The results were submitted to analysis of variance two-way and Tukey's test (P < 0.05). The failure mode was also evaluated. Cast post and core were statistically superior to the glass-fiber posts with the self-post diameter (P = 0.001). When the self-post material was considered, no significant difference was observed between the two post-diameters (P = 0.749). The glass-fiber post-groups presented more fractures in the cervical third than the cast post and core groups. Teeth restored with cast post and cores present higher fracture strength than those reinforced with glass-fiber posts. An increased post-thickness does not increase the fracture strength. Glass-fiber posts lead to less severe fractures.
