Hidden caries is the term used to describe carious lesions that are not visualized clinically on erupted teeth but can be detected radiographically. The exact etiology remains an area of controversy. The purpose of the current case report was to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of two mandibular premolars with hidden caries. After diagnosis was established, both premolars were treated with indirect pulp caps and resin-based composite restorations. A one year follow up appointment revealed both teeth to be free from signs and symptoms of inflammation.
