\Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the ability and efficiency of dental students and new graduates of College of Dentistry at King Saud University in Riyadh to select the appropriate methods of restoring endodontically treated anterior teeth (ETAT) at different conditions. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was distributed among 4th-and 5th-year dental students and new graduates of College of Dentistry at King Saud University in Riyadh. Only students who were pursuing clinical training in prosthodontics were included in this study. Respondents were requested to indicate their gender, level of education, and to select the preferred restoration of ETAT at different conditions. The results were analyzed by one-way frequency and two-way cross-tabulations. Results: The response rate was 98%. When more than 50% of tooth remains A, 94.4% of respondents selected a tooth-colored restoration, whereas 37.3% selected a tooth-colored restoration and a crown when 50% of tooth remains B. When <50% of tooth remains C, 53.6% selected a cast post and core and a crown. Statistically significant relationships existed between the selected restorative method at B and the gender (P = 0.005) and level of education (P = 0.000) and between the restorative method at C and the level of education (P = 0.016). When teeth serve as abutments for fixed or removable partial dentures, more advanced methods of restoration were selected. Conclusions: Selection of the appropriate method of restoring ETAT at different clinical conditions by students and new graduates was evident.
