Abstract: The successful management of patients with amelogenesis imperfecta has traditionally involved use of conventional more destructive methods. Amelogenesis imperfecta has a prevalence of 1:700 to 1:14,000, according to the populations studied.1 The affected enamel can be hypomineralized and/or hypoplastic, causing the affected individual aesthetic concerns as well as potential sensitivity. In this case, the author aims to present a minimally invasive full mouth reconstruction of a patient affected by amelogenesis imperfecta using a combination of direct and indirect methods.

Clinical relevance: The clinical management of amelogenesis imperfecta can provide clinicians with challenges that are not faced daily. In this case report, minimally invasive management of such patients will be demonstrated.
