    • When choosing between direct composite and indirect ceramic restorations for a patient’s restorative treatment, three factors should be considered: aesthetic expectations, the financial investment the patient is willing to make, and the time available for the treatment. Standardising the decision-making process into routine clinical protocols is also recommended, to ensure consistent results that match patient preferences. Direct composite restorations may suit patients who would like to invest a minimum to moderate amount of money to achieve the end-result, while ceramic veneers are regarded as the best options for patients with high aesthetic expectations and no limits on time or budget.
