Dental anterior open bite is a condition which is characterized by decreased incisor dentoalveolar height. The occlusal planes in the dental anterior open bite usually diverge from the mesial to the first premolar forwardly. This case report describes the treatment of dental anterior open bite. A male patient aged 23 years presented 6.0 mm anterior open bite along with increased lower anterior facial height. Other features included incompetent lip, deficient incisor display during rest and smile, and irregular upper and lower anteriors. Management included extrusion of both upper and lower anterior teeth with camouflage nonextraction therapy. There was no recurrence of anterior open bite, and a balanced occlusion was maintained during the follow-up of next 2 years after treatment completion which suggested a long-term stability of occlusion.
