How might amelogenesis imperfecta be treated?

Treatment depends on the type of amelogenesis imperfecta and the type of enamel abnormality.[1][2] Treatments include preventative measures, various types of crowns, as well as tooth implants or dentures in the most severe cases. The social and emotional impact of this condition should also be addressed.[3]

Detailed information on the treatment of amelogenesis imperfecta is available from the UNC School of Dentistry.
