Bottom Line: A 44-year-old woman visited our department with an avulsed tooth that had fallen out on the previous day and was completely dry.The FRC framework and the pontic were fabricated using a duplicated cast model and nanofilled composite resin.This technique not only enables the clinician to replace a missing tooth immediately after extraction for minimizing esthetic problems, but it also decreases both tooth reduction and cost.

ABSTRACT
A fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) fixed prosthesis is an innovative alternative to a traditional metal restoration, as it is a conservative treatment method. This case report demonstrates a detailed procedure for restoring a missing anterior tooth with an FRC. A 44-year-old woman visited our department with an avulsed tooth that had fallen out on the previous day and was completely dry. This tooth was replanted, but it failed after one year. A semi-direct technique was used to fabricate a FRC fixed partial prosthesis for its replacement. The FRC framework and the pontic were fabricated using a duplicated cast model and nanofilled composite resin. Later on, interproximal contact, tooth shape, and shade were adjusted at chairside. This technique not only enables the clinician to replace a missing tooth immediately after extraction for minimizing esthetic problems, but it also decreases both tooth reduction and cost.

Mentions: A 44-year-old woman visited the Department of Conservative Dentistry because of tooth avulsion of the left maxillary central incisors after an injury caused by falling down one day before visiting the dental office. The patient brought the avulsed tooth wrapped in tissue paper. The tooth was totally dry. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed that tooth #21 was avulsed, and a blood clot was found in the alveolar socket (Figure 1). Debridement of the contaminated root surfaces, endodontic treatment, and resin-wire splint were performed. At the 8-week recall, mobility of tooth #21 had increased and periapical radiographs revealed that there was an obvious radiolucent band around the root surface (Figure 2). It was diagnosed as a failure of replantation on #21. The patient was referred to the Department of Prosthodontics for further treatment. However, the patient did not show up for 10 months for personal reasons.
