Introduction: The first permanent molar has a very high rate of caries in children with mixed dentition mostly due to deep pits and fissure of the occlusal surface, morphological features and developmental enamel defects. In case of deep caries lesions, the pulp can become infected leading to irreversible pulpitis. The managements of irreversible pulpitis include pulpectomy, root canal treatment, and tooth restoration. Adhesive restoration with an indirect resin composite onlay, offers many advantages for endodontically treated teeth. The case report aimed to present an indirect composite resin restoration onlay for a broken-down molar tooth of a pediatric patient. Case Report: This paper described the clinical management of irreversible pulpitis in a first permanent molar of a 9-year-old girl from pulpectomy to placement of a composite resin onlay as a definitive restoration. On follow-up, the resin composite restoration remained in place with no fracture or subjective complaints. Conclusion: Functional and aesthetic restoration of an endodontically-treated first permanent molar tooth of a pediatric patient can be achieved with the use of an indirect composite resin onlay and will directly impact the success of the root canal treatment and the longevity of the restoration.
