Introduction: Sudden tooth loss in the anterior esthetic region can be due to trauma, periodontal disease or endodontic failure and can be psychologically and socially damaging to the patient. Despite a wide range of treatment options available, traumatized teeth may be inevitably lost.
Aim and Objective: This case report describes the management of a case with extensive root resorption using natural tooth crown as pontic bonded by using light cure composites.
Materials and Method: Mandibular left lateral incisor formed in to natural tooth pontic used as replacement bonded to adjacent teeth by light cure composite.
Result: Natural tooth pontic proved to give satisfactory results as it was of right size, shape and colour can be obtained at chairside without laboratory technique.
Conclusion: This allows repositioning of the coronal part of the extracted tooth in its original intraoral 3-dimensional position related to adjacent teeth.
