Fracture of maxillary central incisors is the most common dental injury seen in today’s hectic life due to increased road accidents, contact sports or other accidents. It not only causes pain but affects the patient’s esthetics to a large extent. This always is the first concern of the reporting patient. Reattachment of the fractured fragment is possible when patient seeks immediate dental treatment along with the fractured fragment. The following case report describes the treatment of fractured right central incisor using fractured fragment along with prefabricated post. The fragment was attached using composite. This re-established the functions and esthetics of the patient in single visit. During follow up appointment, clinical and radiographic examination revealed no complications. This suggests the efficiency of single visit endodontic treatment and importance of retaining fractured fragment of the tooth.
