: The Authors present a case of a young female patient affected with a serious hypoplasic form of Amelogenesis Imperfecta, involving all the teeth which has been completely restabilished using composite resin. The therapy used has been developed thanks to the chemical-physical qualities of last generation of composites, which allow the compete reconstruction of teeth. Such a therapy has not to be considered definitive, however it has been used as a temporary solution, waiting for final prosthetic rehabilitation. The Authors estimate that such a temporary long term treatment, that utilize composite resins, represent the ideal therapeutical choice thanks to its characteristics of endurance, cost and benefice. In our opinion this therapy prevents tooth deterioration, secures a better mastication, a partial reduction of the teeth sensibility, facilitates teeth cleaning and solves the esthetical problems with great psychological advantage.

Abstract

: The Authors present a case of a young female patient affected with a serious hypoplasic form of Amelogenesis Imperfecta, involving all the teeth which has been completely restabilished using composite resin. The therapy used has been developed thanks to the chemical-physical qualities of last generation of composites, which allow the compete reconstruction of teeth. Such a therapy has not to be considered definitive, however it has been used as a temporary solution, waiting for final prosthetic rehabilitation. The Authors estimate that such a temporary long term treatment, that utilize composite resins, represent the ideal therapeutical choice thanks to its characteristics of endurance, cost and benefice. In our opinion this therapy prevents tooth deterioration, secures a better mastication, a partial reduction of the teeth sensibility, facilitates teeth cleaning and solves the esthetical problems with great psychological advantage.
