Despite a wide range of treatment options available, traumatized teeth may be inevitably lost on certain occasions. This case report presents an alternative treatment option for the premature loss of a traumatized maxillary central incisor because of extensive root resorption and mobility. A fixed appliance-type provisional prosthesis was fabricated by using the patient's natural clinical crown from the extracted tooth. This measure proved to be a very adequate, esthetic treatment solution before a permanent restorative plan could be developed in the future.
