Amelogenesis imperfecta is an inherited disorder involving enamel formation that affects the appearance of the teeth to various degrees. Cosmetic rehabilitation of these patients has been open to a variety of treatment options. Complete-coverage restorations are often recommended. Patients are occasionally averse to this because of the extensive preparation of tooth structure or lack of financial means. In the past, conservative measures here inadequate because the lack of enamel bonding did not allow a durable restoration. Presently, with the use of glass-ionomner cements and dentinal adhesives, dentin-resin bond strengths are approaching those of etched enamel. This article discusses the use of glass-ionomer cement, dentinal priming agents, and etched enamel to create a strong bond between restorative material and tooth structure that provides not only satisfactory esthetics, but also a durable restoration.

    The article focuses on the use of glass ionomer-silver cement in restorative dentistry. The cement bonds with the tooth structure and continually releases fluoride, but due to rapid occlusal wear, glass ionomer cement is not suitable to be used in the high-stress-bearing regions of posterior...
