Talon cusp is an uncommon anomaly in the primary dentition. The present report describes a case of bilateral talon cusps on the maxillary primary central incisors in a 1-year, 4-month-old Indian boy. Both central incisors exhibited a sharp prominent accessory cusp on the palatal surface which extended from the cementoenamel junction to the incisal edge. There were no associated developmental syndromes.
