There are several ways to correct overbite malocclusion with conventional appliances. However, nowadays, there is an increasing demand for aesthetic treatments using aligners. The present paper presents a case report using Clear-Aligner ® (Scheu-Dental) aesthetic aligner associated with the use of intramaxilary elastics, to correct deep bite with intrusion of upper incisors. In this treatment, it was used a sequence of aligners (five aligners). The treatment was concluded in eight months, and upper incisors were intruded and retracted. It can be concluded that the use of aesthetic aligners associated with intramaxilary elastics is effective for the intrusion of incisors and correction of overbite, being a new option in cases in which patients require aesthetic treatment.
