Crown root fractures with subgingival extent are difficult to manage as the biologic width is difficult to maintain. Various treatment options range from conservative reattachment procedure to radical procedures like extraction. One among them is forced eruption or orthodontic extrusion. A novel technique is reported in the management of fractured anterior tooth using the method of forced eruption. This case report gives an option of multidisciplinary approach that does not compromise the aesthetics even during the treatment.
