Dental fractures comprise the most frequent form of traumatic dental injuries and often require an immediate procedure for their treatment. The repositioning of a fractured crown fragment by means of the bonding fragment technique offers several advantages, including recovery of function, aesthetics, shape, brightness and surface texture, in addition to the original contour and alignment of teeth. The aim of this article is to report a permanent maxillary central incisor with crown fracture treated by adhesive fragment reattachment.
