The treatment of a transverse complicated and a vertical uncomplicated crown-root fractures with a horizontal root fracture of a maxillary right central incisor is presented. Coronal fragments were extracted atraumatically and gingivectomy was performed with electrosurgery to expose the subgingival fragment. The root canal was treated with calcium hydroxide to perform the healing at the fracture site. After the root fracture healing, a post was cemented into the canal and the coronal fragment was attached with a composite resin. Examination 18 months after treatment revealed good aesthetics and normal function.
