Case description

This article reports the reattachment of a fractured anterior tooth in a 17-year-old male patient with adhesive resin and a prefabricated metallic post.


Evaluation at 2 years revealed good reattachment, intact post, good esthetics (even after a repeat reattachment) and good periodontal health.
