Abstract: Developmental dental anomalies are marked deviations from the normal color, contour, size, number, and degree of development of teeth. Local and systemic factors may be responsible for these developmental disturbances. Such influences may begin before or after birth, hence primary or permanent teeth may be affected. Gemination refers to the incomplete attempt of one tooth germ to divide into two. Geminated teeth have two crowns or one large, partially separated crown sharing a single root or root canal, the maxillary permanent incisors and the mandibular primary incisors are most frequently affected. A case of a geminated maxillary right central incisor is reported. Root canal therapy on that tooth was performed as it was detected to be nonvital. Clinical significance lies in identifying a case of geminated tooth and treating the anomaly in the most conservative way.
