In recent years, fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) resin has gained popularity in pediatric dentistry. Polyethylene fiber (Ribbond) is a biocompatible, esthetic, and bondable material with different clinical applications in pediatric dentistry, which includes space maintainers, splint materials in children, and orthodontic retainers. FRC resin technology offers various solutions to many complex problems in restorative dentistry because of its two most important mechanical properties; its strength and stiffness. Ribbond is very efficient alternative procedure to conventional unesthetic space maintainers in pedodontic practice with excellent esthetics and functional results. This case report presents the application of this polyethylene ribbon as an interim restoration to esthetically manageable anterior avulsed tooth.
