Discoloration of the teeth is one of the most frequent reasons for patients seeking dental care. Trauma, endemic fluorosis, tetracycline stains, post endodontic treatment and developmental defects are some of the common causes of tooth discoloration. Increase in fluoride concentration in drinking water to more than 3ppm causes patchy brown discoloration of enamel, which is esthetically unappealing. Cosmetic rehabilitation of these patients has been open to a variety of treatment options and one such is the use of direct composite veneers. An 18-year-old girl presented with severe discoloration of teeth due to fluorosis. The aim of the treatment was to restore satisfactory esthetics by using direct composite veneers.
