The enamel hypoplasia, the demineralization, and the dental fluorosis are the result of general or local lesions at the dental enamel, which causes esthetic damage, since they are in disharmony within the natural aspect of the teeth. The search for a perfect esthetic has become one of the main goals of the patient and the dental surgeon as well. Microabrasion is an efficient method for intrinsic and superficial spots removal from the enamel, restoring the esthetics with minimal tissue waste. This study presents a clinical case in which the patient who presented enamel hypoplasia heredity type (imperfect amelogenesis) distinguished by brownish spots, mainly in the upper medial incisor teeth, underwent the micro abrasion technique.
