Fragment bonding of fractured anterior teeth: Case report
Kina, Mônica / Ribeiro, Luciana Gazaniga Maia / Monteiro Junior, Sylvio / de Andrada, Mauro Amaral Caldeira
The unharmonious esthetic appearance of anterior teeth can be caused by changes in tooth color, shape, and size or by traumatic dental injury. Because the fragment bonding technique can restore functionality, morphology, and especially esthetics, it should be one of the choices in the restoration of fractured anterior teeth if the fragment is available. This article describes a clinical case of bonding of fractured anterior teeth and demonstrates how an esthetic appearance can be satisfactorily restored without wear to sound structure.
