Enamel hypoplasia is a lifelong condition that results from having less enamel than normal. It can affect both the permanent and primary teeth because it is a developmental defect. It can appear as physically missing part of the tooth structure, such as the appearance of grooves, pits, or missing areas of the crowns.
