Evolving recent advances in esthetic orthodontic treatment like clear aligners increased a need for esthetic treatment compared to conventional fixed appliances. The clear aligner is a clear, removable and made up of semi-elastic polyurethane material where it uses computer aided modeling technique for the purpose of fabrication and to move the teeth for establishing optimal occlusion. The objective of this case report was to explain an advanced orthodontic treatment method for correction of Angle’s class II subdivision malocclusion with proclined upper and lower incisors, increased overjet, midline spacing in upper & lower anteriors and upper midline deviation towards the left side by 3 mm relating to the facial midline using clear aligners. At the end of aligner treatment, class II malocclusion, spacing and proclination within short period of time was corrected compared to that of fixed appliance. The patient was satisfied about functional and esthetic outcome after 1 year follow up
