A 14-years and two-months-old female patient sought treatment for a dental alignment. The patient is hyperdivergent, skeletal Class III, Class III molar and canine bilateral, with anterior crossbite. Initially the plan was to perform a multidisciplinary surgical orthodontic treatment for skeletal Class III correction, but the patient refused, and then opted for a Class III camouflage treatment with extraction of maxillary second premolars and mandibular first premolars. Treatment duration was one year and nine months. Circumferential retainers were placed. Satisfactory results were obtained, and the occlusion and aesthetics of the patient improved.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2014;44(3):158-164)
