The aim of this study was to report a clinical case of conservative treatment modality for the amelogenesis. Amelogenesis imperfecta is a condition that shows different clinical manifestations and genetic pattern. The main clinical manifestation is compromised aesthetics. This clinical condition in a 15-year-old male patient was treated with direct restorations using microhybrid composite resin (Amelogen Plus, Ultradent Products, Inc., South Jordan, USA), by means of the clear matrix technique. Treatment not only restored function and provided a more favorable aesthetic appearance for the smile, but also showed a positive psychological impact and thereby improved perceived quality of life. Thus, it was possible to use a conservative approach in these teeth with amelogenesis imperfecta treated by direct composite resin restorations.
