In the orthodontic clinic, skeletal and dental bimaxillary protrusion is presented frequently as one of the factors leading patients to seek orthodontic treatment, mainly due to the esthetic involvement it has. The patient of this article illustrates this situation, being deeply uncomfortable with her esthetic appearance, due to the excessive upper incisors exposure and problems with lip sealing. This case was presented to the Brazilian Board of Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics (BBO), as part of the requisites to become a BBO Diplomate.
