Anterior crown fractures are a common form of traumatic dental injuries that mainly affect the maxillary central incisors in children and teenagers.(1) Traumatic injuries of the teeth involve varying degrees of damage to the supporting soft tissues, or the teeth itself. In the pre-adhesive era, fractured teeth needed to be restored either with pin retained inlays or cast restorations that sacrificed the healthy tooth structure and were a challenge for clinicians to match with the adjacent teeth.(3) With the advent of adhesive dentistry, the process of fragment reattachment has become simplified and more reliable. This study reports a case of fragment reattachment of the maxillary right central incisor.
