Abstract: The supplemental tooth is of normal shape and size resembling a particular tooth from the normal dentition. These teeth might cause esthetic and/or functional problems because they are usually located in the maxillary anterior region. This is a case report of a patient who had visual discomfort from the color of his teeth and requested esthetic treatment. On intraoral examination, a supplemental maxillary lateral incisor that was not noticed by the patient was incidentally diagnosed by the clinician. Proper examination and diagnosis, particularly in young children, is important to make a correct and rational treatment plan and avoid invasive and surgical procedures. The treatment of supplemental lateral incisors depends on the type and position of the supernumerary tooth and its effect or potential effects on adjacent teeth
