Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) - a hereditary heterogenous disorder causing developmental alterations in the structure of enamel. The Al trait can be transmitted by either autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked modes of inheritance. Genes implicated in autosomal forms are genes encoding enamel matrix proteins, namely: Enamelin and Ameloblastin, Tuftelin,                          MMP-20 and Kallikrein – 4 [1]. It is necessary to diagnose the case and provide durable                      functional and esthetic management of these patients, where the unaesthetic appearance                           has a definite negative psychological impact. We present here three case reports of AI                              that we diagnosed on the basis of clinical and radiographic features along with the                         complete review.
