The management of patients with traumatic injuries to their dentition is an integral part of the general dental practice. Anterior teeth with fractures that extend subgingivally require a complex treatment plan that addresses biologic, esthetic, and functional factors, such as mastication and speech. Treatment of crown fractures often requires a multi-disciplinary approach. However, crown-root fractures with fracture line below the gingival attachment or alveolar bone crest present restorative difficulties. This case report presents a 24-year-old male who reported with fractured upper right lateral and central incisors and upper left central incisor following road traffic accident. On clinical examination, it was observed that the upper right lateral incisor had a horizontal fracture at the cervical one-third level with the fracture line extending subgingivally, mid crown fracture of right central incisor and incisal fracture of left central incisor. All the traumatized teeth were first treated endodontically, and then referred to our department for orthodontic extrusion before permanent crown placement.
