Rehabilitation of anterior teeth with direct composite veneers: a case report Merve Yücel, Bora Korkut, Dilek Tağtekin Marmara University, Turkey 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’.
