Traumatism involves more than just pain; it also implies a psychological loss. Dental trauma has become routine at medical offices and University clinics, particularly because of the psychological impact involved and the damage that they can cause to soft tissues. Nowadays, technology and research can restore both the physical and the psychological self. The possibility of gluing tooth fragments back to their remnants is an alternative that has great clinical repercussions and produces an intense response in terms of self-esteem. This study aims at presenting an overview of the literature illustrated with a case report of a patient who was involved in an automobile accident and suffered fracture of three teeth.
