Reattachment of a fractured tooth fragment is a conservative approach that helps to restore form, function, esthetics, and phonetics in a short time. Reattachment procedures have become more predictable with developments in adhesive materials, posts, and preparation techniques that enhance the durability and strength of the procedure. This article discusses the management of two complicated crown fractures that were successfully treated by fragment reattachment using a minimally invasive approach.
