Introduction: Veneers with direct resins are one of the common treatment options for clinical applications following the developments in adhesive and restorative dentistry in recent years. These restorations are applied on prepared tooth surfaces or even without any preparation, with an adhesive agent and a composite resin material directly in a single visit in the dental clinic. If done properly, the aesthetic outcomes of direct composite veneers are very satisfactory in addition to superior optical and physical properties. In recent history these restorations were thought to be temporary alternatives to indirect ceramic veneers; however, they are no longer named 'day savior fillings' today. These restorations are called minimally invasive, functional and long-lasting 'direct aesthetic restorations' that perfectly emulate natural dental tissues even in anterior area. Discolorations of teeth or restorations, dental malformations or mal-positions, diastemas, crown fractures and abrasive or erosive defects are some examples of up-to-date indications of direct composite veneers. In this study we would evaluate the common shares used in direct veneer restoration. Materials and Methods: The clinical records of all direct veneering cases during the period between 1 January 2020, and 1 January 2021 were. Shade selection was taken into account. Gender and age of the patients were also included in the study. Results: It can be seen that the majority of the direct veneers were placed in relation to maxillary central incisors and the most commonly used shade was found to be A2. How much color change can be achieved under such thin restorations depends on the thickness, color and opacity level of the veneer and the luting resin. Understanding the parameters that guide the modulation of hue, chroma and value will allow the clinician to modify a set color by mixing different shades in varying proportions until the desired color is finally achieved. Conclusion: Within the limitations of the study it can be said that most common shade used among both the gender was found to be A2 for direct veneer restoration
