Baby Bottle Syndrome, also known as Early Childhood Caries, is a diffuse decay condition of dental hard tissues in deciduous dentition. During the night, Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus ferment carbohydrates from food and beverages, producing lactic acid that induce enamel demineralization. This case report describes the treatment of a small patient with severe loss of dental tissue both in the anterior superior area and the posterior sectors. Aim of this case report was to describe a complete rehabilitation of the posterior and canine areas with indirect composite restorations.
