Coronal fracture of anterior teeth is a common form of dental trauma that affects children and adolescents. It is a tragic experience, which requires immediate attention and quick functional and esthetic repair. The major challenge for the clinician for managing such type of dental injuries is to re-establish the natural esthetics of the traumatized anterior tooth. Traditionally, such injuries have been restored with composite resins. They have the primary disadvantage of color mismatch and variable wear. Therefore, if a broken fragment is available, the restoration of the tooth using its own fragment should be the first treatment of choice. This clinical report describes reattachment of tooth fragment of complicated crown-root fracture of a deciduous maxillary central incisor in a 4-year-old child following trauma.
