Amelogenesis imperfecta is a tooth development disorder in which the teeth are covered with thin, abnormally formed enamel.
Amelogenesis imperfecta is passed down through families as a dominant trait. That means you only need to get the abnormal gene from one parent in order for you to get the disease.
