ABSTRACT

Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth are a commonly found fracture affecting children and adolescents. Management of fractured tooth depends on the availability of the fractured segment, extent of the fracture, and extraoral time of the fragment. If the fractured segment is intact and available, reattachment is an option. Reattachment of fractured tooth fragments can provide immediate and long-lasting esthetics. Additional retention that is needed in some cases is fulfilled by placement of a post. Fiber-reinforced composite post will give better esthetics compared to metallic one. Patient cooperation and understanding of the limitations of the treatment is of utmost importance for good prognosis. This study reports a coronal tooth fracture treated by tooth fragment reattachment with fiberpost reinforcement.

Keywords: Dual cure resin cement, Esthetic fiber post, Reattachment.
