Trauma to the anterior teeth is relatively a common occurrence. There are several treatment modalities for such condition, one of which is the reattachment of fractured fragment itself. Reattachment of fractured fragment provides immediate treatment with better esthetics, restoration of function, and is a faster and less complicated procedure. Reattachment of tooth fragment should be the first choice and is a viable alternative to conventional approaches because of simplicity, natural esthetics, and conservation of tooth structure. Patient cooperation and understanding of the limitations of the treatment is of utmost importance for good prognosis. The manuscript presents two case reports describing the management of a complicated fracture of maxillary anterior teeth treated endodontically, followed by reattachment of the same fragment. Reattachment of fractured tooth fragment offers a viable restorative alternative, immediately restores tooth function and esthetics with the use of a very conservative and cost-effective approach.
