Rehabilitation of a single upper central incisor is considered an esthetic challenge for the dental team. In addition, it produces anxiety in the patient, for being an esthetic region. The present article reports a case in which a reintervention was necessary on an upper central incisor, due to mobility of the crown, related to fracture of the intraradicular retainer. Removal of crown and existing intraradicular retainer was necessary, followed by endodontic retreatment, placement of a new fiber post and cementation of a new ceramic crown. This case report presents the step-by-step of the procedures, and discusses the rationale for each step. Knowledge of the different substrates and the different adhesive protocols for each step of the rehabilitation guarantees the success of the restorative treatment
