Amelogenesis Imperfecta is a dental condition that affects only the enamel, as it is an entirely ectodermal disturbance. A 16-year-old individual presented with discolored natural dentition. Composite restorations were fabricated for the maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth and metal-ceramic crowns were cemented on the posterior teeth. The final treatment result provided the patient with improved dental aesthetics that enhanced his self-image.
