Aim: The case series aims to manage dental trauma by reattaching with the patient's own tooth fragment. Background: Crowns of anterior teeth and posterior teeth break due to trauma and biting hard objects. Reattachment of fractured tooth fragments by various techniques offers many advantages over other treatments, especially restoration of the esthetics, function, shape, texture, and translucency of the surface. Case description: The present case series describes three clinical cases of reattachment in which two were done in permanent maxillary central incisors with an uncomplicated and complicated crown fracture and the third case was reattachment of fractured mesiopalatal cusp of maxillary first molar. Clinical significance: Besides being conservative, fragment reattachment evokes an immediate positive psychological response from the patient.
