There is some controversy about whether or not tooth preparation is needed before placing porcelain laminate veneers. Without adequate preparation, the added surface contour may increase the risk of periodontal disease. When properly executed, veneers for cosmetic dentistry should be reversible. Many teeth that could have been saved with the use of a conservative laminate veneer are destroyed by full crown reduction. The case presented in this article illustrates the preparation of six maxillary anteriors with with pronounced spaces between them for laminate veneer placement.
