Simple re-contouring can make profound change for carefully planned cases. This middle aged patient reported with labially placed left maxillary canine. Clinical examination revealed unesthetically labially placed canine. Since patient wanted minimal invasive treatment, plan included re-contouring of canine to reduce the labial bulge and increasing the length of the canine and lateral incisors.
