Crown fractures as a part of traumatic injuries are common among schoolchildren. They create serious functional, esthetic and psychological problems for both children and their parents. Repeated reconstructions are needed in many cases because of compromised results as time passed by. The clinicians find it difficult because of the small patient’s age, need of high esthetics in the front region and the choice of exact treatment plan.
In this review article the method of reattaching fractured incisors has been described. A critical analysis of proposed from different authors improvements and objections has been made. All the advantages and evidences described in the literature are discussed in order to give the clinician a good therapeutic approach.

Key words: reattachment, crown fractures, permanent teeth.
