Mentions: The case we present here is about a 53-year-old female patient reported with the chief complaint of unaesthetic smile due to decayed upper front tooth and misalignment. Intraoral examination revealed an angles Class I malocclusion with severe crowding in the upper and lower arch with maxillary right canine labially erupting and maxillary right lateral incisor in cross bite and an inadequate overbite. The upper left maxillary lateral incisor was grossly decayed beyond the scope for restoration, and Class V smooth surface cavity was present in maxillary right canine, left first premolar, mandibular left canine and first premolar. A Class V composite filling with secondary caries was present in maxillary left central incisor [Figure 1]. The patient had an acceptable posterior occlusion, straight facial profile, normal nasolabial angle and a symmetrical face [Figure 2].
