Single shade in anterior veneers
Using a single shade for direct veneers is a great way to simplify this challenging procedure. Choosing between a direct and an indirect approach in anterior veneering should be based on a dentist’s self-assessment of his skills and preferences. But it is important, although, to always consider the most minimally invasive procedure. If we want to use a direct approach we need to have thorough knowledge of anatomy and color. Today we have a new material on the market (Brilliant Ever glow, Coltene) which will help every dentist to create a very nice restoration using only one shade.
In this article we will discuss this quick and in a predictable way how to have a nice direct veneer with an easily polishable composite material.
It’s very easy to restore this kind of cases with a new medium translucency composite. We need just one shade to create very nice direct veneers.
