Root fractures are those that involve dentin, cementum, and the pulp. They occur more frequently in children than adults. This case report describes the treatment and 5-year follow-up of two maxillary central incisors with horizontal root fractures using mineral trioxide aggregate and the application of intracoronal bleaching of the discolored tooth.
