Abstract

The esthetic restoration of severely mutilated primary anterior teeth has for a long time been a challenge for the pediatric dentist, not only because of the available materials and techniques, but also because the children who require such restorations are usually among the youngest and least manageable group of patients. This case report describes the challenging task of treating a three-year-old early childhood caries patient with mutilated maxillary incisors with composite resin using a custom made post made with 0.7 mm wire and posteriors where endodontic treatment has been done and stainless steel crown has been placed.
