Introduction: Glass fiber post usage has been extensively studied due to biomechanical benefits, in addition to adhesive capacity, which makes it able to be used in several clinical situations. Studies show that a perfect root canal adaptation is important for restorative properties improvement. Objective: The aim of this paper is to present a technical sequence of post relining for the restoration of a fractured upper central incisor with wide root canal. Case report: A 12-year old male patient came to dental school with a fractured upper central incisor, exposing pulpal tissue. After endodontic treatment procedures the selected post could not fit the root canal and a microhybrid composite resin was selected for post relining. After that the post was cemented with a autopolimerizing resin cement and the final restoration completed with the same resin. Results: The suggested technique resulted on a functional and esthetic rehabilitation with great possibilities of long lasting restoration.
