Tooth transposition is a rare but disturbing problem for patients in esthetic and functional aspects. In this report, we describe a case with unilateral transposition of the maxillary canine and premolar. The patient received full mouth non-extraction orthodontic treatment with upper 1st premolar substitution for upper canine. Crown morphology modification and gingival plastic surgery for harmonious anterior esthetics and function were performed. Patient was satisfied with the treatment outcome.
