Talon cusp is one developmental anomaly of tooth that shows varied presentation as mentioned in the literature. The occurrence of talon cusp in the palatal aspect of the maxillary teeth has been the most common of all. These cases tend to occur due to hyperactivity of the enamel organ. The occurrence of this developmental defect in turn can lead to alteration in normal structure and function of the tooth. Hereby, we are reporting a rare occurrence of twin talon's cusp involving the palatal aspect of maxillary central incisor.
