Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a hereditary developmental disorder affecting deposition, calcification, or maturation of dental enamel. In general, it affects all or nearly all of the teeth in both the primary and permanent dentitions leading to functional as well as esthetic inadequacies. Henceforth, early recognition followed by appropriate preventive care and oral rehabilitation is essential in the successful management of AI. This clinical report discusses the oral rehabilitation of 12-year-old boy diagnosed with hypoplastic type of AI. Management strategies include composite resin veneers for anterior teeth and stainless steel crown (SSC) for posterior teeth and management of 7-year -old girl with hypoplastic AI using SSCs. This approach decreased tooth sensitivity and enhanced esthetics, masticated function, and boosted the self-esteem of the patient.
