Composite veneers are very technique sensitive and can require significant chairside time sculpting for optimum contours. Uveneer™ saves time by producing precise, high-gloss composite veneers in final tooth shape and helps fulfill restorative and esthetic needs.
What Are Uveneer Composite Veneers?
This dental tool is a reusable, autoclavable template set. It contours veneers and leaves a glossy surface.
A template set contains 32 templates: 16 medium and 16 large.
The templates are for upper and lower arches and include (medium and large): two central incisor, two lateral incisor, two canine, and two premolar templates.
How Does It Work?
The template contours composite veneers into a final tooth shape. During the curing process, the light is transferred through the template and composite. The template has a non-stick surface, and it is an oxygen barrier. These factors make the template easy to remove and leave a hard, polished surface on the restoration.
Minimal preparation is required. The template saves most of the chairtime and much of the effort spent sculpting and polishing composite. Any modification of the tooth shape that is needed after creation of the composite veneer is quick and simple.
What Are Its Uses?
Uveneer can be used to create composite veneers for multiple teeth, a chairside mock-up, or temporary veneers. It can also be used in communication with lab technicians and orthodontists.
Who Uses It?

How to Use Our Templates for Composite Veneers
- Conservatively prepare the tooth and remove all caries.
- Select the corresponding Uveneer template. It should extend from the gingiva to the contact points, covering most of the tooth.
- Place pre-cut separators on either side of the tooth.
- Use your preferred bonding process and cure.
- Apply the pre-selected shade of composite freehand, but do not cure it.
- Lightly press the template over the composite, using the midline indicator on the template to ensure it is properly aligned.
- Clean excess composite from edges of the template.
- Thoroughly cure the composite through the template.
- Use the template handle to gently remove it.
- Use a fine polishing bur to gently trim excess composite.
- There is no need for polishing. The surface of the restoration will be glossy.
- After each use, thoroughly clean the templates with alcohol wipes, and dry before autoclaving.
