When creating veneers for teeth the dentist “prepares” the teeth before taking any records. The term “preparation” signifies the amount of tooth cutting involved. Some types of treatments like Ultrathin veneers require no tooth cutting compared to the traditional veneer work where sometimes some preparation may be necessary. Sometimes "preparation" simply means roughening the surface to enable better bonding to occur with the adhesives. Depending on your teeth your dentist will discuss which type of veneers will be best suitable for you and also what type of preparation will be involved.
The newer cosmetic veneers include Ultrathin Veneers, Durathin Veneers and Lumineers which involve no drilling and hence no injections since no tooth is being cut. These are extremely comfortable to have done and long lasting solutions in cosmetic dentistry.

I cannot thank Dr Doshi and all his amazing staff enough for making me feel so comfortable and at ease.
They have given me something that I have always missed, the confidence to smile, I wish I had taken the step to enhance my life earlier.
The Perfect Smile is unlike any other dentist that I have attended. The friendly atmosphere and facilities are second to none.
Not once was I put under any pressure to go ahead with my treatment, but I'm glad I did. Worth every penny.
Look out anyone who's holding a camera.
