dentinogenesis

 [den″tĭ-no-jen´ĕ-sis]
the formation of dentin.
dentinogenesis imperfec´ta a hereditary disorder of tooth development, transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, and characterized by discoloration of the teeth, ranging from dusky blue to brownish, poorly formed dentin with an abnormally low mineral content, obliteration of the root canal, and normal enamel. The teeth usually wear down rapidly, leaving short, brown stumps.

(den'ti-nō-jen'ĕ-sis),
The process of dentin formation in the development of teeth.
[dentin + G. genesis, production]

/den·ti·no·gen·e·sis/ (-jen´ĕ-sis) the formation of dentin.
dentinogenesis imperfec´ta  a hereditary condition marked by imperfect formation and calcification of dentin, giving the teeth a brown or blue opalescent appearance.
