In some cases, some patients' incisors have a lingual position. Thus, due to their positions it's difficult to clean them. Also, because the neighboring teeth cast a shadow on them, they seem like dark teeth. We can align these teeth with prefabricated composite veneers in a short session.

Patients who have this kind of condition are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. They can't clean these teeth very well. This is even more problematic for smokers. Although this problem can be solved in a number of ways, we can also solve this problem using prefabricated composite laminated veneers in practical way with a single appointment.
