The ugly duckling stage is a physiological stage characterized by a small median diastema and distally inclined incisors. A mesiodens is a supernumerary tooth found in the premaxilla between the two central incisors. It can be single or multiple, impacted, erupted, or inverted. We present a case of a 9-year-old nonsyndromic, asymptomatic male patient with bilateral double mesiodentes in the ugly duckling stage of the mixed dentition.
