Introduction: Anterior tooth fracture is the most frequent squeal of traumatic injuries, which dental practitioners have to deal with. Proper reconstruction of extensively damaged teeth, both aesthetically and functionally, is the main goal to be achieved. A new approach of fragment reattachment procedure known as â€œBiological Restorationâ€ can be an alternative to achieve this goal.
Case Series: This case series presents two such cases wherein the aesthetic and functional recovery of extensively damaged central maxillary incisors through preparation and adhesive cementation of â€œBiological Posts and Crownsâ€ was performed. Both biological crowns, post and dental fragments, were obtained from natural, extracted teeth of another individual.
Conclusion: The technique of â€œBiological Restorationâ€ presents a low-cost option and alternative technique for the morpho-functional recovery.
