Abstract: A case report of 21 years old female patient who accidentally got her maxillary left central incisor fractured is presented. The fracture line was 1mm above the marginal gingiva but the coronal tooth structure present was discoloured, weak and brittle. By means of orthodontic mechanism a healthy tooth structure was brought above the marginal gingiva and was restored with a crown after being endodontically treated. A collaborative approach that aimed in preserving the natural permanent tooth along with a healthy periodontium and an esthetic smile of a young patient rather than extracting the tooth and opting for an implant was attempted.
