Traumatic exposure of pulp in immature permanent teeth is most commonly observed in pediatric patients. Preserving the dental pulp is an important factor while treating an incompletely formed root of a traumatized tooth. Cvek pulpotomy is a method which helps in maintaining its vitality by providing a favorable environment for continued root development. This report describes a case of a young patient whose maxillary right central incisor suffered crown fractures because of a traumatic accident in school. Cvek pulpotomy with mineral trioxide aggregate was performed in order to achieve apexogenesis, and the tooth was restored with glass ionomer cement and the tooth fragment was reattached. The patient was recalled at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months.
