The talon cusp, or dens evaginatus of anterior teeth, is a relatively rare dental developmental anomaly characterized by the presence of an accessory cusp-like structure projecting from the cingulum area or cementoenamel junction. This cusp resembles an eagle's talon and hence is named after it. It usually contains normal enamel, dentin and, sometimes, extending into the pulp. Most of the cases are unilateral and only one-fifth of the cases are bilateral. We are hereby highlighting a rare and distinctive presentation of talon cusp involving the bilateral maxillary incisors.
