Dental traumatic injuries are widespread in the population and are a frequent pathology among children and teenagers. Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) bonded fixed dental prothesis have been used as an alternative to conventional metal-based or zirconia-based fixed restorations especially among young patients. As well as the bonding system, mechanical adaptation and the retention of the fiber frame and the grooves of the pontic are fundamental for the success of this type of adhesive restoration. The esthetic solution was the building of a biologic restoration using reinforced polyethylene fibers as an interim restoration for this case.
