Synopsis:  Traditionally, restoration of teeth in young patients is thought to be interim and minimally invasive in order to ensure "definitive" restorations can be completed when adulthood is reached. Just as improvements in dental materials for our adult patients has evolved, our treatment approach and treatment ideology to handling difficulties concerning our young patients has evolved as well.

Important questions arise: What changes or modifications must we be aware of in these young patients who are still in growth and development stages to get the greatest longevity out of the solutions we are providing? Can we consider utilizing "permanent" materials in young dental patients?

1. To demonstrate with clinical cases how the use of modern day restorative materials have application in pediatric patients

2. To provide criteria for the use of implant placement in children and adolescents

3. To provide criteria for the use of porcelain veneers in young patients
