This case report deals with the successful endodontic treatment of double dens invaginatus in maxillary left central incisor. Dens invaginatus is a rare developmental anomaly that is challenging to diagnose and treat. A patient reported with unesthetic appearance and previously attempted endodontic treatment of tooth #21. Cone beam computed tomography revealed the presence of a complex invagination communicating with the periodontium. A combination of techniques enhanced the debridement of the complex invagination. Obturation was performed using warm vertical compaction. The patient was asymptomatic during the follow-up period of 12 months.
