Traumatic fracture of anterior teeth is one of the common dilemmas facing the dentist during daily practice. Classical treatment of a fractured tooth involving the pulp includes the use of post and core with or without a crown, or extraction of the remaining part of the fractured tooth and replacement with a three-unit fixed partial denture or an implant. With the improvement of adhesive systems, reattachment of the fractured tooth fragment became possible as a mode of treatment that immediately improves the esthetic quality of the restored tooth. This article presents a clinical technique for the restoration of a fractured maxillary central incisor, by reattaching the labial enamel fragment using a metallic post and resin composite restoration. One-year clinical evaluation revealed successful results for this technique.
