In a dental practice, it is becoming increasingly common to have endodontic cases which are seen to fail. The spike in the number of endodontic treatments carried out has consequently led to the increase in the number of failures seen and complications in their management. Endodontic retreatment is favored over dental extraction due to the desire to preserve the tooth and prevent adverse consequences in terms of functional and psychological effects that the loss of a tooth would have on a patient. This article showcases a clinical case that required endodontic retreatment to combat any complications that could arise and lead ultimately to the extraction of the tooth. Considering that the tooth in question has a special importance with a physiognomic role, we resorted to its endodontic retreatment and we have covered it with a porcelain fused to metal crown.
