Dentin is a mineralized tissue in tooth, produced from odontoblasts, that differentiates from the mesenchymal cells of dental papilla. Hereditary dentin defects are broadly classified into two types, namely, dentinogenesis imperfecta (DGI – type I and II) and dentin dysplasia (DD – type I and II). DGI is an autosomal dominant hereditary disorder, and DD is a rare hereditary disturbance of dentin formation that affects both the primary and the permanent dentition. The purpose of this report was to present a case of DGI–type II and a case of DD–type II to highlight the importance of diagnosing hereditary dentin disorders.
