Dentinogenesis imperfecta is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder with abnormal dentin structure affecting both primary and permanent dentitions leading to discolouration and attrition of teeth. Diagnosis is usually based on family history, a detailed clinical examination and pedigree construction. Treatment involves preservation of teeth, removal of infection, restoration of function and esthetics.

Keywords : discolouration; attrition; dentin defect.
