Abstract

Crown fractures are the most frequent traumatic injuries to permanent teeth and mainly involve the maxillary incisors due to their exposed position in the dental arch. One option for managing crown fractures, when the tooth fragment is present and in good condition, is reattachment of the fragment to its original position. This paper reports on three crown fracture cases in which successful esthetic and functional results were achieved by reattachment of the tooth fragment.
