Amelogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary developmental disorder of the dental enamel, in both primary and permanent dentition. The main clinical characteristics are extensive loss of tooth tissue, poor esthetics, and tooth sensitivity. Transmission of the gene takes place by either autosomal, dominant X-linked, or recessive modes. This clinical report describes a treatment sequence based on a multidisciplinary approach. A 21-year-old girl with hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta was referred to the Ege University School of Dentistry clinic. She was concerned about the poor appearance and sensitivity of her teeth. The patient presented with an anterior open bite, although orthodontic treatment had been completed previously. Periodontal gingivectomy of her posterior teeth followed by endodontic treatment where indicated was proposed. The prosthodontic treatment consisted of metal ceramic fixed partial dentures of precious alloy. At the end of treatment, function and esthetics were improved to a level acceptable to both the patient and the dental team.
