A number of conditions can lead to esthetically unacceptable dentitions like dental caries, discoloration, dental trauma, early loss of teeth, misalignment and any abnormality of shape, size and color. Today we have a large number of solutions available for esthetic problems in pediatric dentistry. But the biggest dilemma is: How to choose what is best for a particular patient and that situation.
