This article describes the management of a case of oblique crown root fracture of a central incisor where the fractured fragment was used as a temporary replacement crown in order to maintain esthetics during the period of orthodontic extrusion of the remaining root. Placement of the final restoration after orthodontic extrusion resulted in good esthetics and periodontal health postoperatively. The merits and demerits of this treatment modality are discussed.
