Aim: A 23 years old female patient with aesthetic problems in anterior
teeth presented at the clinic. Caries and old restorations were determined
on maxillary incisors and canines. After occlusion had been checked,
direct composite veneer restorations were planned.
Material an Methods: Shade selection was done by using MDP (Mobile
Dental Photography; Smile Line, Switzerland) device, "medium dentin
(MD)" and "light enamel (LE)" (Essentia, GC, Japan) colors were selected.
A silicone key was prepared after initial photographs had been taken. The
teeth were isolated with rubber dam and retracted with simple dental floss.
Caries and old restoration were removed and veneer preparations were
done. Then 37% orthophosphoric acid was applied on prepared surfaces
and an universal adhesive agent (G-Premio Bond, GC, Japan) was used.
The palatal wall was formed using a silicone key. Mesial and distal walls
were shaped using self-contoured matrix bands (Sectional Contoured
Matrices, TOR VM, Russia). Restorations were completed using layering
technique with a composite brush and wetting resin (Composite Primer,
GC, Japan). Finishing was done with polishing discs (OptiDisc, Kerr,
USA). Interdental polishing was done with interdental strips (Epitex, GC,
Clin Oral Invest (2019) 23:2515–2572 2525
Japan) and surface polishing was done with two spiral discs in two different
grains (Twist DIA, Kuraray, Japan).
Results: The patient was recalled for 1 week, 1-, 6-, 12-month appointments and restorations were scored according to modified USPHS
criteria. In the 12 month recall, the modified USPHS scores of the restorations were considered as ‘acceptable’.
