The present article describes a case of Wilson's disease in a 23-year-old girl. In Wilson's disease, there is an excessive absorption of copper from the small intestine and decreased excretion of copper by the liver, resulting in increased tissue deposition, especially in the liver, brain, cornea, and kidney. The patient in our case presented with poor esthetics due to proclinated upper anterior teeth. Careful history and clinical examination led to the appropriate phase of the disease. The acquaintance of the clinical presentations and management of Wilson's disease led to the safe delivery of medical and dental care.
