Anterior crown fractures are a common form of traumatic dental injuries that mainly affect the maxillary incisors especially in children and adolescents. Complicated crown fractures although less common can be a challenging task to the clinician. Since the development of adhesive dentistry, the patient's own broken tooth fragment can be used to restore the fractured tooth. Reattachment of fractured tooth fragments with fiber postreinforcement offers a viable restorative alternative. Such procedure is economical and needs less chair-side time as compared to many traditional methods. In addition, the procedure provides good and long-lasting esthetics, as the original morphology, color, and surface texture are preserved. The main objective while treating such cases is successful pain management and immediate restoration of function, esthetics and phonetics. This paper presents a report of two cases of coronal tooth fracture that is successfully managed using tooth fragment reattachment.
