Background and Objective: Direct veneer restorations, as a definitive treatment plan in esthetic therapies, have only been a second choice to porcelain veneers when it comes to the final esthetic result and longevity. Achieving a highly polished surface on the composite resin has always been a clinical challenge and numerous techniques and systems have been introduced to accomplish this. The aim of this article is to discuss the various tools and techniques available and to demonstrate the use and results of a recommended multi-step disk based polishing technique on various clinical cases restored with resin veneer build-ups. Materials , Methods and Conclusion: Three different clinical situations requiring esthetic anterior veneer restoration were restored with composite resin veneers. The completed resin veneers were finished and polished using a multi-step disk-based polishing system (Super-Snap Rainbow Technique Kit, Shofu Inc.). The system was found to be very cost effective, easy to handle, hassle free, faster and therefore it definitely guarantees an excellent finish without a compromise on quality.
