Author(s): Renata Pereira
Stains and irregularities on tooth surfaces are factors that often lead patients to seek dental treatments to improve their smile aesthetics. Among these lesions, one may cite Molar Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH). MIH is a lesion of hypomineralization of systemic origin, in which up to four first permanent molars may be affected, concomitantly or not with incisors. This case report aims to describe the step-by-step of a treatment of MIH on left maxillary central incisor of a young patient. Accordingly, a direct restoration was performed with conventional composite resin, allowing the reestablishment of aesthetics and function, significantly influencing the self-esteem and quality of life of the patient.
