Several dental restorative materials are available to provide aesthetic improvements to the anterior and posterior teeth. However, some systems require complex and sensitive techniques. Aesthetic restorations may be performed conservatively with composite resin, often avoiding the more invasive and indirect techniques. This article describes a new ultraconservative and predictable approach, by use of an “aesthetic personalized matrix” (MEP), to prepare the semi-direct composite veneers. This new ultraconservative approach is appropriate for a general clinical setting, reproducing the anterior teeth by using a simplified method, thus resulting in a more harmonious and predictable fit to the smile.
