Direct composite veneers serve as one method for restoring anterior teeth. However, many dentists shy away from this procedure due to a lack of innate artistic talent, lack of experience, past failures, and the length of time needed to complete the procedure. As a result, they opt for laboratory-fabricated alternatives, resulting in deep preparation designs. This course will demonstrate the steps required to fabricate direct composite veneers in a highly simplified manner using veneer templates and microhybrid composite resin.
The focus of this clinical study will provide the dental professional with the steps needed to fabricate direct composite veneers in a highly simplified manner.
- Describe the properties of esthetic composite resin
- Describe technique differences between direct and indirect veneers
- Refer to the history of direct composite veneers
- Restore anterior teeth in a rapid manner using the materials outlined with the steps discussed
