Here are some free tools that will restore some objects in AD if you delete them.

 http://www.quest.com/object-restore-for-active-directory/
There are more products on the quest website that are not free.
Also, here is a link to activating the Recycle Bin for AD and how to recover items with PowerShell command.

Single object can be restore by performing Authoritative Restore.

Refer the below link to perform Authoritative Restore

Although there are so many methods available for restoring an object in active directory, but let me tell you one thing all those tools will only show SID or GUID of deleted object and you must have to perform a typical set of tasks to convert SID to name .

I tell you one tool that i have personally used and it shows deleted objects by name not by GUID or SID
then you can easily restore objects deleted accidently or deliberately. download the tool from the link given below.
