Background: Amelogenesis imperfecta is a rare developmental disorder. This condition can be quantitative as the hypoplastic type or qualitative as the hypomineralized hypomatured type. Case Report: This is the first clinical reported case in a 14-year-old Libyan female. It describes the oral management of hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta using a non-invasive technique. Management aims to reduce teeth sensitivity, improve esthetics, preserve the vertical dimension of occlusion, and restore masticatory function. Satisfactory results were performed with a more preservative restoration with less expensive treatment. Follow-up observation was designed every 6 months to preserve tooth structure and to prevent excessive wear until the patient reached a suitable age for crown coverage. Conclusion: The clinical significance of such a case is to shed light on the importance of early detection and diagnosis that will help choose an appropriate treatment plan to preserve teeth structure until a crown replacement is reached. Additionally, an increase in the knowledge of general practitioners regarding the early intervention approach of these cases and their effect on treatment outcomes is also provided.
