A recent trend in dentistry has been to conservatively and esthetically restore anterior teeth. This is evident by the growing use of composite resins and other tooth colored restorative systems. Today with trend towards minimum intervention in dentistry, composite veneers have become an answer to discolored anterior teeth. Direct placement of composite veneers has greater control, require a conservative removal of tooth structure and can be easily repaired and modified at any stage. However chair side direct placement of composite veneers is time consuming procedure and is technique sensitive. A new technique for placement of composite in single visit using the modified customized matrix has been proposed. This paper illustrates two case reports of direct composite veneering using a new modified customized matrix technique for treatment of discolored teeth after bleaching.
