Abstract Children and young adults often present to a dental practice after accidents that affect their anterior teeth. In many situations, only 1 tooth is affected by the trauma, and choosing the right treatment option can be complex. Esthetic restoration of the maxillary anterior dentition can be accomplished by using direct or indirect techniques. Direct resin composite restoration can be characterized as a life-like definitive restoration and is a predictable, conservative, and reliable chairside procedure. This article describes a straightforward protocol used to restore a patient's appearance with a single-shade composite resin after a Class IV fracture received during a sporting event.
