Abhinav Singhal, Aditi Jain.

The coronal fracture is an unexpected occurrence and requires professional preparation for the urgent approach. A coronal fracture involving non-complicated enamel and dentin might receive different kinds of treatment such as re-attachment of fragments or restoration with composite materials. The reattachment of crown fragment is a conservative approach one should always consider for young patients. A trauma to anterior teeth is an agonizing experience and creates an emotional impact on both the patient and parents. Recent developments in adhesive technology in combination with advancements in restorative materials have resulted in use of natural tooth fragment for management of fractured anterior teeth. This paper reports a case of a permanent both maxillary central incisor with fracture treated using composite resin restoration and post and core along with ceramic capping.
