To describe an esthetic orthodontic treatment using aligners in an adult patient with class II subdivision associated with crowding and dental crossbite. An 18-year-old hyperdivergent male patient with skeletal class II from mandibular retrusion presented for an orthodontic treatment. Occlusally, the patient presents class II subdivision, crossbite at tooth 4.4, an upper midline deviated towards the left with respect to the lower and facial midlines, and slight crowding in both arches. The patient refused conventional fixed multibracket treatment in favor of aligners. Pre- and post-treatment records as well as 1-year follow-up records are presented.
