In many routine dentistry cases, the mental state of the patient plays an important role. In the following clinical case a girl of only 12 years of age no longer wanted to go to school because she was ashamed of her smile. This girl, whose teeth 11 and 21 had become intruded through a fall and who was thus undergoing orthodontic treatment to adjust her middle incisors, attended our clinic as a patient. Our task was to develop a strategy for reconstruction of her teeth that would restore to the patient, at least temporarily, a feeling of self-esteem without having any adverse effect on her ongoing orthodontic treatment.
