Generally, the appropriate rehabilitation concepts of patients with Amelogenesis Imperfecta (AI) should include a multidisciplinary treatment approach.

Case Report:

This case report describes full mouth rehabilitation of a patient with AI. A 20 years old woman was referred to our clinic with a chief complaint of tooth discoloration, diastema, unsatisfactory esthetics and slight tooth sensitivity. Clinical, histological and radiographic examination revealed hypoplastic AI. Short crowns, diastema, occlusal wear with exposed dentin in the posterior areas, the lack of contact points, dental caries and discoloration were the other clinical findings.


As a result of the periodontal and prosthetic evaluation, gingivectomy and ostectomy were planned, and they followed a full mouth fixed prosthetic restoration.


There was no complication or complaint in a 3-year follow-up. At the end of this follow-up period, the patient was satisfied with esthetics, function and phonation properties of her prostheses.
