Abstract

The purpose of this case report is to describe a step-by-step method of restoring function (and esthetics) to infraoccluded second primary molars using a crown-form crown, in a case of bilateral congenital missing premolars. This technique restores form and function, with a minimal reduction to the tooth. It also conserves tooth material and permits good bonding of the resin-based composite to the enamel. The crown-form resin-based composite restoration is an easy and inexpensive solution in cases of infraoccluded teeth. Yet, patients must be warned about the possible failure of the crown and the need of periodic follow-up appointments.
