The present article describes a case report of a 19-year-old female with facial asymmetry and chin deviation towards the right. Sequential extraction of all four first premolars was performed for midline correction and alignment of blocked out lateral incisors. After the teeth were aligned in the arch, asymmetric elastics were used for correction of the canine and molar relation. Improved facial and dental esthetics were achieved after orthodontic treatment. The posttreatment results were maintained 1year after the treatment. Orthodontic treatment can successfully improve facial appearance in patients with mild facial asymmetry, thus eliminating the need for orthognathic surgery in such cases.
