Tooth replacement in esthetic zone demands both hard and soft tissue considerations. In cases where Implant is not desirable by the patient, the post extraction sequelae of alveolar collapse could be avoided by alveolar funding. In this process, the fractured / carious root piece is submerged / sauce red at or 1 mm below the alveolar crest. This helps in funding or rather preserving of tooth supporting apparatus that maintains equilibrium of stomatognathic system and prevents alveolar collapse. The present case report presents with a case of middle aged, systematically healthy male patient with fractured left central incisor at subgingival level. Following surgical saucerization, endodontic treatment and prosthetic replacement, desirable esthetic results were achieved. One year follow-up showed acceptable emergence profile with plaque free poetic. The findings of the present case are conclusive of predictable alveolar funding of poetic with root present.
