Fused teeth and talon cusp are developmental anomalies with inherently bizarre anatomy. These anomalies may develop during tooth bud morphodifferentiation as a result of a developmental aberration of both the ectoderm and mesoderm. Concurrent occurrence of different developmental anomalies is rarely seen and reported in the literature. This article describes one such encounter of bilateral fusion of permanent mandibular central and lateral incisors, along with the presence of talon's cusp on the fused teeth, and reviews the associated clinical problems and available treatments options.
