The management of two unusual cases of dens invaginatus and talon cusp is presented. The first concerns talon cusp in maxillary primary and permanent lateral incisors, a supplemental tooth with dens invaginatus hampering eruption of the permanent incisors. The other present with bizarre crown morphology of a lateral incisor with talon cusp, dens invaginatus and a palatal accessory cusp-like structure. Early diagnosis and management are important to avoid complications.
