Abstract

A rare case of a carious supernumerary tooth fused to the labial surface of a maxillary right central incisor is reported. Root canal therapy on the maxillary right central incisor was performed owing to the pulpal communication between the supernumerary tooth and the maxillary right central incisor after removing the carious supernumerary tooth structure. The defect was then restored with anterior resin composite and the esthetics reestablished.
