Tooth preparation is necessary for some cosmetic procedures in order that your restorations will fit seamlessly into your smile. Without tooth preparation, your porcelain veneers may protrude oddly from the smile, creating a look that is unnatural and unbecoming. To avoid this, tooth preparation is often needed for veneers.
As explained in the video below, Glendale cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox only prepares those teeth that require a better foundation – whether due to contour irregularities, old restorations, or similar issues – to help conserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. During your initial porcelain veneers consultation, Dr. Wilcox can assess your smile and help you determine which teeth, if any in your mouth, will need to be prepared prior to the placement of your restorations.
