With some veneers, due to the way they are made, the teeth need preparing first. This means that the enamel is filed or drilled down to ensure that the veneers fit in an aesthetically pleasing way. Once enamel shaving has taken place veneers become a lifelong commitment. It is not possible to remove veneers once the teeth have been shaved because the enamel is compromised. This is why it is important to explore all the options before going ahead with the treatment.
To potentially avoid enamel shaving altogether you could opt for a veneer that is ultra thin. Due to them being so thin it is very rare that enamel shaving is needed. Often they fit over the tooth with no fuss or mess while still looking beautifully natural. The clinic offers ultra-thin Lumineers and Emax veneers that require very little or no enamel shaving at all.
