Crown fractures represent the largest part of traumatic injuries to the permanent teeth. They are relatively common event among schoolchildren. They create serious functional, esthetic and psychological problems for both children and their parents. The front position of fractured teeth gives precondition for easy notises which make esthetics the most important factor. The clinicians should deal well with all characteristics of color, shape and adhesive protocol. Difficulties may occur because of the small patient’s age, the right choice of treatment plan and its fulfillment. In this review are collected data for the method composite resin build-up when restoring fractured incisors. A different improvements and objections have been discussed in order to achieve succession in the right therapeutic approach.

Key words: composite resin, crown fractures, permanent teeth.
