A Conservative Approach to Managing a Fractured Central Incisor

This interactive web story describes a conservative approach to managing a fractured central incisor with impaired esthetics, using composite resin to achieve appropriate shade matching and a natural appearance. 

Fragment reattachment, gingivoplasty, a freehand direct veneer, and morphological correction of the adjacent tooth were all employed to correct the consequences of this common dental injury. Given the conservative and reversible nature of this method, composite resin should be considered the first choice for esthetic reattachment procedures.
