    A 40-year-old male patient was unhappy with the discolouration on his maxillary right lateral incisor that appeared after endodontic treatment. An internal bleaching treatment had not resulted in the desired outcome, so a restorative treatment was needed to obtain a tooth shade similar to that of the adjacent teeth.

    Direct composite veneers: optimising the smile after orthodontic treatment.

    by Dr Paulo Moteriro, Portugal.

    A 35-year-old female patient presented with an enamel defect after completing orthodontic treatment. The defect affected the buccal surfaces of her maxillary anterior teeth and she wanted to improve the aesthetic appearance of these teeth. The patient asked for a solution that not only covered the defects, but also made the teeth appear whiter. She already had undergone a home-bleaching treatment. Based on three different treatment options presented, the patient selected a direct composite veneer approach.
