BACKGROUND: The loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion in children with quickly progressing early childhood caries
hinders the aesthetic rehabilitation of primary incisors. Minimally invasive restorations using chemical-mechanical caries removal
methods preserve sound dental tissue and maintains the health of the pulp. This is the treatment of choice for children and allows crown
reconstruction of the primary incisors without the need for endodontic treatment. The resources employed in the rehabilitation process
range from biological restorations to direct and indirect crowns with or without the aid of a celluloid matrix. CASE REPORT: The aim of
this study was to describe a case of maxillary incisor rehabilitation in a female patient aged two years five months using a mock-up
combined with the stratified technique and Planas' direct tracks. After a 26-month follow-up period only a little fracture of the
reconstructed incisor had occurred. Clinical Implications: In the case described, neuro-occlusal and functional rehabilitation enabled the
establishment of satisfactory aesthetics in the primary incisors.
