A supernumerary tooth is one that is addition to the normal series and can be found in almost any region of the dental arch. The most common supplemental tooth is the permanent maxillary lateral incisor. In the present case report we have described the treatment planning of supernumerary lateral incisor teeth. We have also discussed the problems arising due to presence of two supplemental lateral incisors in maxillary anterior segment and its correction by fixed orthodontic treatment. Extraction of supernumerary maxillary lateral incisors with all first premolars gives the patient a beautiful smile and esthetics.
