Treatment

* If a tooth fragment is available, it can be bonded to the tooth. Otherwise perform a provisional treatment by covering the exposed dentin with glass-ionomer or a permanent restoration using a bonding agent and composite resin.
* The definitive treatment for the fractured crown is restoration with accepted dental restorative materials.
* Three angulations (periapical, occlusal and eccentric exposures) should be used in the radiographic examination to rule out displacement or fracture of the root.
* Radiograph of lip or cheek lacerations to search for tooth fragments or foreign material

Follow-up

* Clinical and radiographic control at 6-8 weeks and 1 year
