Abstract Dentinogenesis imperfecta (DI) is a genetic disorder affecting the structural integrity of the dentin that can result in weakened dentin. The affected teeth, especially posterior teeth, often need to be extracted due to severe wear or fracture. This frequently yields a loss of posterior occlusion, as well as a loss of occlusal vertical dimension. Besides wear and fracture, anterior teeth are often unaesthetic due to discoloration. The current treatments of choice, including composite bonding restorations, and more recently all-ceramic restorations, have been suggested to preserve the remaining teeth and tooth structure. However, there are a limited number of studies on dental implants in DI patients. The effectiveness of dentin bonding and dental implants in DI patients is not known. This clinical report describes a 32-year-old Asian female with DI who underwent full mouth rehabilitation. The posterior occlusion, mostly molar areas, was restored with dental implants and ceramo-metal restorations. The anterior teeth and premolars were restored with bonded lithium disilicate glass-ceramic pressed veneers and CAD/CAM crowns. This case demonstrates that restoring functional occlusion and esthetics for a patient with DI can be completed successfully using contemporary implant therapy and adhesive dentistry.
