Lumineers requires NO tooth preparation...UNLESS teeth are badly misaligned then in order to give the teeth the appearnce of being in porper alignment some teeth may need to be slightly altered. This reshaping of the teeth can usually be done without anesthetc becuase of the minimal amount of tooth structure removed.

Good luck!

You get a much better, less bulky result. I suggest you get a second oppinion to see if you are in fact an ideal candidate for Lumineers. Most people are not!
