The patients included in our study were aged over 15 years, had no impacted permanent teeth, they were of either gender, emergency patients requiring early stabilization of fracture segments, contagious patients (MRSA positive patients, viral hepatitis), patients with compromised dentition (major tooth loss, amelogenesis imperfecta, dentinogenesis imperfecta), patients with simple, stable and nondisplaced fracture patterns.
Inherited defects of dental enamel, known as amelogenesis imperfecta (AI), can be divided into 3 major categories based on the quantity and quality of the enamel: hypoplasia, hypocalcification, and hypomaturation (Witkop, 1988).

Wilson bands are developmental defects that result from disruptions in amelogenesis and thus enamel matrix formation (Goodman and Rose 1990, 1991).
In addition to the effect of restorations on the final aesthetics of factors such as large trauma fractures, renewed old laminate veneers, deep internal coloration or 'Amelogenesis Imperfecta', depth of preparations to be made with lamina applications and thickness of ceramic material and color of resin cement used, the impact of permanent restoration on marginal harmony and fracture resistance are factors that should be meticulously addressed by clinicians seeking a successful restoration (3,4).
[44] This work describes structural P = 0.045 similarities between gliadins and proline-rich enamel proteins and shows that potential cross-reactions of AGA could take place during amelogenesis in untreated patients.
Developmental defects of the enamel are basically classified under two main categories: enamel hypoplasia and enamel hypomineralization caused by an insult to the ameloblasts during amelogenesis. Hypomineralization (opacity) is a qualitative developmental defect of the enamel caused by incomplete enamel mineralization and maturation below the enamel surface that is intact at the time of eruption.
As downstream targets of FGFs, members of the Ras superfamily are also involved in amelogenesis. With conditional Racl deactivation, a decreased level of amelogenin is expressed in ameloblasts, which also loosely attach to the secreted enamel matrix, and thus cause hypomineralization in enamel [92].
Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a term for a clinically And genetically heterogeneous group of conditions that affect the dental enamel, occasionally in combination with other dental, oral, and extraoral tissues.
