    Abstract

    Intrinsic green discoloration of teeth is an uncommon condition which mainly affects the primary dentition. Children can be teased about this, resulting in a loss of self-esteem and problems with social integration. The purpose of this paper was to present a case of green pigmentation in the permanent dentition caused by hyperbilirubinemia during infancy and an intermediate restorative approach to mask the esthetic deficiency arising from this.
