A noninvasive treatment of amelogenesis imperfecta
Preissner, Saskia / Kostka, Eckehard / Blunck, Uwe
Amelogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary disease affecting the quality and quantity of enamel with a prevalence of 1:700 to 1:14,000. Patients suffer from dental sensitivity and compromised esthetics. The conservative treatment of choice is based on ceramic crowns, but preparation design is unnecessarily destructive to tooth tissue. This case report describes a noninvasive technique with adhesively inserted occlusal composite resin crowns.
