Abstract

This case report presents the treatment a 15-year-old child referred to our dental department 24 h following a dental trauma
during sports activities resulting in a coronal fracture of tooth #11. After clinical and radiographic examination, a crown fracture with pulp exposure was noticed. The operating field was isolated with a rubber dam to ensure moisture control and an endodontic treatment was performed. In the second visit, the root canal filling material was partially removed while maintaining 5 mm in the apical third. A dual resin was injected into the canal from the apical to the coronal third. The fiber post was placed into the root. Then, the fractured fragment was placed on the root with the fiber post passing through the access cavity into the crown. In the third visit (one month later), a 3mm-deep preparation was performed in the buccal surface using a round diamond bur. Following color matching, a fluid composite was applied on the buccal preparation and it was light-cured. This was followed by finishing and polishing.
