Regenerative Endodontic Procedures (REP) provide modern dentistry with a biological minimally invasive option to manage young and necrosed teeth. Now more than ever before, the biological and intrinsic physiological healing response of the human body is being applied to a multitude of medical and dental procedures. REP emulates additional benefits over the traditional procedures leading to increased root length/ width with optimum strength of the pulp-dentin-cementum complex. Two methodologies of the REP protocol have been employed in the present case report as a retreatment modality for permanent maxillary central incisors. The teeth had a long-term history of traumatic dental injuries and successively failed root canal treatments suggestive of poor prognosis. Hence, the clinical and radiographic success for the 11-year-old boy with two years of follow-up alongside esthetic smile correction using an inter-disciplinary approach proved to be of immense value. These outcomes led to an overall improvement in the quality of life with extended preservation of the natural teeth until further prosthesis may be feasible.
