The aim of this paper is to describe the treatment of a patient with amelogenesis imperfect in the maxillary teeth, employing the enamel microabrasion associated with tooth bleaching. It was used a microabrasive agent consisting of 6% hydrochloric acid and silicon carbide (Whiteness RM) and later, a hydrogen peroxide 35% bleaching product with the use of Twist pen system (Mix One Supreme). It can be concluded that, since being taken clinical care and also in diagnosis/planning, the association of microabrasion and bleaching techniques is an excellent option for esthetic and conservative treatment of teeth chromatically altered by enamel defects and its sequels.
