Gemination and talon's cusps are rare developmental dental anomalies affecting both primary and permanent dentitions. Talon's cusps normally occur on the palatal surface of permanent maxillary incisors, whereas gemination is more common in the primary dentition. The purpose of this article is to report an uncommon case of talon's cusp on a geminated primary maxillary lateral incisor, including details of the clinical and radiographic findings and treatment in an 8-year-old girl.
