Introduction: Stainless steel crowns (SSCs) are the popular restorative technique for the young permanent first molars treated endodontically. However, these restorations are not esthetically appealing and need replacement once adjacent teeth erupt and occlusion is stabilized. Aim: Digitally customized aesthetic restoration constitutes as a reliable approach for restoring decayed young permanent molars. Materials and methods: Here we present an innovative treatment approach for endodontically treated permanent young molars using a digital workflow with Intraoral scanners (IOS) and computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) fabrication of the restoration. IOSs include scanning of the prepared tooth, its antagonist, and the bite. CAD/CAM preparation of the customized restoration is followed by cementation and follow-up. Result: IOSs are well tolerated by children, easily and swiftly implemented. Digital workflow should be considered for endodontically treated permanent young molars in contrast to prefabricated unaesthetic options.
