Dentinogenesis imperfecta (DGI) type II affects both primary and permanent dentitions and has the autosomal mode of inheritance. The affected teeth may appear as amber or gray because of chipping of enamel shortly after their eruption. Correct diagnosis and management are highly needed to restore the quality of oral health and to improve esthetics and masticatory functions. We present here a case of systematic and conservative dental approach in the management of a 7-year-old child having Dentinogenesis Imperfecta Type II (DGI Type II) with 1 ½ follow-up.
