Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth are common sequelae of dental trauma. In case of complicated fractures, where the fractured segment is available and there is close approximation of the segment to the remaining tooth, root canal treatment followed by reattachment of the fractured segment with fibre post reinforcement is a feasible option. The procedure is simple and economic and needs less chair-side time as compared to many conventional methods. In addition, the procedure provides good and long-lasting aesthetics, because the original morphology, colour, and surface texture are maintained. This clinical case reports the treatment of coronal tooth fracture case that was successfully managed using tooth fragment reattachment using glass-fibre-reinforced composite post.
