Abstract

The composite resin restoration of permanent incisors with crown fractures is a conservative, timely, and economical treatment option. Several variables can affect the longevity of this type of restoration including: the overall prognosis of the injured tooth, whether the pulp is exposed, the extent of the crown fracture, the restoration's size, the patient's age and occlusion, and future reinjury of the restored tooth. Contemporary adhesives and composites allow clinicians to restore fractured permanent incisors with good predictability, restoring both the esthetics and function of the affected tooth. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the current state of the restoration of permanent incisors with crown fractures using composite resins. (Pediatr Dent 2009;31:102-9).
