Treatment of crown fractures often requires a multidisciplinary approach. In the anterior teeth, reestablishment of proper esthetics and function is quite important for the patient. However, crown-root fractures with fracture line below the gingival attachment or alveolar bone crest presents restorative difficulties. This case report presents a cervical tooth fracture that had been treated with minimal invasive approach with different disciplines. The tooth had endodontic treatment and a glass-fiber post, and a composite core was accomplished. Then, the tooth was extruded to the desired level with orthodontic forced eruption before definitive restoration. © 2008 Blackwell Munksgaard.
