Abstract

Enamel hypoplasia is a developmental defect that occurs due to disturbances in enamel matrix formation. Disorders occurring during developmental and maturation stages of enamel can lead to reduced enamel thickness that can result in depressions and fissures in the surface of enamel. The characteristics of enamel hypoplasia may be depressions, grooves and surface cracks in the enamel. This case report presents a conservative restorative treatment of enamel hypoplasia using prefabricated composite veneer to mask color changes and defects of enamel of the maxillary lateral incisor.
