Abstract

This clinical report describes an interdisciplinary approach for the coordinated treatment of a 20-year-old woman patient diagnosed with amelogenesis imperfecta. The treatment objective was to restore masticatory function, to reduce dental sensitivity and improve the facial esthetics. A multidisciplinary team approach treatment is recommended, including periodontology, orthodontics, endodontics, and prosthodontics. Prosthodontic treatment included composite laminate veneers and metal-ceramic fixed partial dentures. After treatment the patient was regularly recalled during the 25-months postoperative period. Radiographic and clinical examinations at recall revealed no evidence of complications associated with the restored teeth or their supporting structures.
