The search for dental treatments is not limited to painful situations or prosthetic rehabilitations. The restorations of shape, function and color discrepancy of teeth are major complaints: with the intention of improving aesthetics of the smile, these patients seek dental offices. The fracture of old restorations, associated with dental stain, can be caused by several situations and there are many ways of clinical resolution. Direct composite veneer is a predictable, safe and affordable modality. In the present article, a clinical case will be reported, demonstrating the steps of a direct veneer in a darkened and endodontically treated tooth, with a main focus on controlling opacity and translucency of the restoration.
