Abstract

Traumatic injuries to permanent maxillary anterior teeth are seen commonly in children. Restoration of these traumatically injured teeth are always a clinical challenge for a predictable aesthetic outcome. This case report describes a multidisciplinary approach of a subgingivally fractured maxillary permanent central incisor by endodontic therapy, orthodontic extrusion using J-hook, fiber post placement, core build-up followed by surgical gingival recountouring using electro-cautery to reestablish the biological width. Finally esthetics was restored using porcelain fused to metal crown.
