A case of mandibular prognathism with facial asymmetry was presented. The missing left central incisor was previously restored with a compromising cantilever bridge. Interdisciplinary approach including orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, and prosthetic dentistry was performed and gave patient a better esthetic and functional result. Ways to achieve better esthetics, evaluation and possibility of surgery-first orthognathic approach, and other possible treatment options were discussed.
