Re-restoring endodontically treated teeth with complicated crown or crown root fractures is a major challenge for dental practitioners, because they can present difficulties for successful treatment. This report describes the management of supragingivally complicated crown fracture of an endodontically treated maxillary lateral incisor. The involved tooth was restored with the reattachment procedure using light transmitting fiber post. After 11 months, the reattached tooth had a satisfying function, favorable physiological and esthetic outcomes and healthy surrounding periodontal structures.
