An abnormal development of teeth can result in malformed teeth. Indirect resin composites that can be fabricated with the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/ CAM) technique are available for the fabrication of permanent restorations. This case report presents the esthetical and functional rehabilitation of a 10-year-old female patient with oligodontia and conical canines. Crowns fabricated from indirect resin composites were milled and polished to restore the conical canines 23, 33, and 43 (FDI). In addition, direct resin composite fillings were applied to teeth 53, 52, and 11, and a resin-bonded fixed dental prosthesis with single-retainer design fabricated from zirconia ceramic that was partially veneered with silica-based ceramic was inserted to replace tooth 22. The young patient and her parents were very satisfied with the functional and esthetical results of the resin composite crowns after insertion. Oral hygiene measures were demonstrated, and could be easily realized by the girl. Since only a few clinical studies are available, the clinical longevity of permanent restorations fabricated from indirect resin composite has not yet been proven. In this case report, indirect resin composites were used to achieve esthetically and functionally pleasing results treating conical teeth.
