Abstract

Amelogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary disorder of tooth formation that affects the enamel layer of teeth resulting in poor dental esthetics, chipped off tooth structure with dentinal hypersensitivity. Treatment of such cases demands full-mouth rehabilitation with tooth colored ceramic crowns after endodontic treatment of the symptomatic teeth. This case describes the full-mouth rehabilitation of a 19-year-old male with significantly improved oral health impact profile. The hereditary disorder of tooth formation, if treated meticulously after proper clinical and radiographic diagnosis results in better oral health impact profile.
