Crown fractures of the permanent dentition comprise the most frequent form of traumatic dental injuries and often require an immediate procedure
for their treatment. Reattachment of the fractured fragment to its original position is an optimal approach to esthetic and functional rehabilitation
and can provide better and long lasting aesthetics, improved function, a positive psychological response and is a faster and less complicated
procedure. This paper reports the case of a permanent maxillary central incisor with crown (enamel and dentin ) fracture treated by adhesive
fragment reattachment.
