The merits of minimal tooth preparation or no tooth preparation for porcelain veneers in comparison to deep preparation into dentin are discussed.  Among the advantages are the avoidance of tooth sensitivity and the avoidance of debonding of the veneers, as well as no need for anesthesia and no need for temporaries. Accordingly, the procedure is easier, faster, and better for both the patient and the dentist.
