Abnormalities of shape, size, color and structure of the whole or part of the anterior dentition of children can lead to such problems. It has been considered that the psychologic benefits of an oral esthetic improvement are potentially more important to a patient than traditional dental procedures. Young adults with a normal dental appearance are judged more socially attractive. Loss of primary teeth can lead to neuromuscular imbalance with decreased masticatory efficiency, speech disturbance, development of parafunctional habits and psychological problems. Therefore the child’s esthetic health may be considered increasingly necessary aspect for an overall healthy personality development. Every child deserves to be “dressed” with a healthy smile!
