Talon cusp is a rare developmental abnormality of the tooth characterized by presenting usually on the palatal/lingual surface of anterior teeth as a cusp like projections. The crown of the tooth is covered by normal enamel and dentin, with a cusp like projection that may or may not contain an extension of pulp. Presence of talon cusp on the facial surface of an anterior tooth is rare and literature shows that only few cases have been reported earlier. In this case we present a facial talon cusp on the maxillary right lateral incisor of a 15 year old girl.

Key words:
Facial talon cusp, lateral incisor, dental anomaly
