Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a hereditary disorder expressed by a group of conditions which cause developmental alterations in the structure of enamel. Management of AI is very important because of esthetic and functional concerns as they create a positive psychological impact on the patient. A 12-year-old female patient reported with a complaint of yellowish discoloration of teeth with unesthetic appearance and painful sensitivity to mastication. The intraoral examination observed brownish discoloration of permanent anterior as well as posterior teeth of all segments. The height of the crowns of the upper and lower posterior teeth was also reduced. A hypoplastic type of AI was diagnosed in permanent dentition. A multidisciplinary planning was performed mainly to relieve dental sensitivity and improve masticatory function and esthetics of the patient and was carried out in multiple visits that ranged from preventive phase and restorative phase. Posttreatment improvements in esthetic as well as successful reduction in hypersensitivity were observed.
