A 14-year-old male patient reported with a horizontal fracture of almost the entire crown of a maxillary incisor, extending subgingivally at the palatal side. After root canal therapy and electrosurgery, the tooth fragment was reattached using a total-etch dentin-bonding system and a hybrid composite. Due to enamel cracks and the necessity for more retention, the labial surfaces of the teeth were veneered with a microfilled composite. The clinical situation of the reattached teeth was confirmed successful by radiographic and photographic assessment after 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. The restoration of an anterior tooth with original tooth fragment in young patients has advantages over conventional composite or prosthetic restorations. However, reattached teeth with fracture extending subgingivally, require long-term follow-up.
