Management of children and adolescents with qualitative or quantitative defects of enamel or dentin are often impeded by patient compliance, rare prevalence of disease, lack of evidence, and cost. The aim for all patients in this case series was to develop a suitable treatment strategy that required little chair time and was applicable to several conditions. Thirty-four laboratory-made composite resin restorations were placed in differently affected permanent posterior teeth of eight young patients. The ages of the patients ranged from 6 to 15 years. All restorations were adhesively inserted with the etch-and-rinse technique and are still in situ. The longevity of the restorations at present is 2 to 48 months. This treatment method allowed relatively comfortable treatment for children and adolescents who required extensive dental treatment. The outcome has been favorable with good patient compliance, brief chair time, and functional and esthetic restorations. (Quintessence Int 2012;43:305311)

Key words: adolescents, children, hypomineralization, hypoplasia, indirect composite resin restorations
