Interesting case,  would like the groups thoughts.
This was referred to me with the accompanying radiograph attached.
The referral slip simply said,  " UL1 has a large post close to the apex,  
I have been unable to remove the bridge although I fractured the porcelain"  
That was all the info I got.  Where do we go next? - Bill

Hi Bill, maybe the crown and the post are one solid piece. 
In that case you would have to reduce the crown/post to
a pin as thin as I match, removed the  post, do the endo, 
and place a new post and send back to referral. Just
a normal job, except that it'll probably take you twice 
as long. So be  sure to set your fee high enough - Winfried

Hi Winfried, What now when you see the rest of it? - Bill

I guess its time also to change those crowns.  
Best regards. - Nazariy
