Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is an inherited disorder of development that primarily affects dental enamel. The etiology of this pathology is the mutation or the expression alteration of 13 genes [1]. The tissues of both dentitions being reached, the aesthetics of the smile is lost from childhood. The psychosocial impact of AI imposes a relatively young functional and aesthetic care [2]. The difficulty of the reconstruction of tooth tissues in definitive dentition is based on two elements: the associated dento-facial dysmorphosis and the difficulties of bonding due to the alteration of the adhesive bond to the affected enamel. Management with the best prognosis is therefore based on a treatment combining orthodontics and indirect reconstructions [3]. We propose here, the analysis of a case then and the simulation of the treatment by CAD. The interest of this approach is to be able to perform the simulation of the wax-up to offer a coherent therapeutic proposal, both functional and aesthetic.
