Background: Restoration of severely damaged primary molars with very short clinical crowns is a big challenge and often extracted due to the lack of restorative options. Total crown replacement (TCR) is a novel treatment alternative for the restoration of such teeth through bonding of the biological restorations which are the sterile decoronated crowns of the extracted human teeth, obtained from a tooth bank. Case Report: Presented here is a report of two cases restored with the TCR technique. A 9-month follow-up showed satisfactory results in terms of function, esthetics, gingival health, and morphology including occlusal wear. TCR can be a viable and economical alternative for restoration of severely decayed/damaged primary teeth, otherwise indicated for extraction.
