Class III malocclusion can be defined as a skeletal facial deformity that is characterized by a forward mandibular position with respect to the cranial base and or the maxilla. We present a case of a 15-year-old man with skeletal Class III malocclusion who was treated with non-extraction orthodontic camouflage treatment using an orthodontic conventional technique. A fixed appliance, straight wire appliance (SWA) technique was used with a non-extraction treatment plan. Treatment was accompanied by intermaxillary Class III elastics. The total duration of active treatment was 23 months. There was a significant improvement in his occlusion, smile esthetics, and soft tissue profile pattern. Orthodontic camouflage can be considered an effective therapy for correcting milder cases of skeletal Class III malocclusion.
