Dental fractures in endodontically treated teeth with a great loss of dental structure may be restored using bonding techniques associated with glass fiber post retention of the fragment. The present study reports a weakened and fractured crown restored by dental reattachment after crown stabilization with polyvinilsiloxane matrix, and a glass fiber post cementation for dental fragment retention. The employed techniques enabled the correct dental positioning during reattachment, with a possible increase of resistance. After 6 months follow-up the periodontal tissues showed itself in health condition and functional evaluations maintained the success of the proposed treatment.
