Dentinogenesis Imperfecta is a rare hereditary dentin developmental disorder that affects both primary and permanent dentition. It is characterized by discolored and translucent teeth ranging from gray to brownish-blue/amber. The enamel may split readily from the dentin when subjected to occlusal stress. Radiographically, there is evidence of cervical construction, short root, and pulp chambers, whereas the root canals are smaller than normal or completely obliterated. Here, the author presents the case of a 28-year-old male with generalized enamel hypoplasia and isolated distinctly translucent second premolars in three quadrants along with root changes. Unlike the classical representation of generalized involvement of the teeth, this case differs and needs to be documented. A thorough history, careful clinical, and radiographic observation are the key to early diagnosis and management of such a rare entity.
