Dentists face significant challenges in diagnosing and treating tooth fractures. Specially in cases of cracks, the determination of extent of crack is of paramount importance for determining the treatment modalities. This case report aimed to demonstrate the feasibility and outcome of partial cracked tooth using biodentine pulpotomy. A 24-year-old male, who had pain, while taking cold meal in a permanent left first mandibular molar with a temporary restoration reported in our department for treatment. After removal of temporary restoration, the crack was noticed on the tooth at distal marginal ridge extending into pulp chamber. Due to involvement of pulp chamber pulpotomy was performed and Biodentine was placed as vital pulp therapy agent which relieved symptoms. To repair the crack line, light cure flowable composite is used which also provides strength and decreased microleakage. Which is followed by GIC and composite restorations.
