Various treatment options may be employed for coronal fracture of anterior teeth and root, depending on the level of fracture. The following case reports highlight the anterior tooth trauma managed with reattachment of fractured segments using post and cores. In the first case, an easy and ultraconservative technique without any tooth preparation is used which involves intraradicular support, i.e., fiber post and core. In the second case, an interdisciplinary approach is used to treat the root fracture where biological width was encroached. The flap was raised to expose the fractured root with a small amount of osteoplasty so that the segments could be checked for exact fit and bonding can be done with proper isolation of the operating field. Successful esthetics and function were restored by conservative and economical means, and 6 months follow-up showed no failure of bonding or postoperative pain, indicating crown, and horizontal root fracture after trauma should not go for extraction.
