A case is reported in which an incisor fractured below the alveolar crest 6 months after completion of apexification treatment was surgically extruded for prosthetic coronal restoration. After the surgical procedure, a dowel post was placed in the root canal, a core was built using glass-ionomer cement, and a porcelain veneer crown restoration was completed. The 24-month follow-up examination after surgical, endodontic, and prosthetic treatments showed that the tooth was clinically and radiographically healthy and functioned well.
