Bonded ceramics and especially porcelain veneers have long been regarded as a less invasive method of fixed prosthodontic treatment. The guidelines for tooth preparation associated with traditional full crowns are long established; unfortunately, there are no such preparation guidelines regarding bonded ceramics, and a number of different approaches have been described in the literature. It may seem that deviating from a full-crown preparation will automatically lead to a more minimally invasive treatment. However, when scrutinizing the photographs and procedures described in the literature, significant tooth reduction can often be seen even if the stated goals were to remove as little tooth substance as possible and confine the preparation to enamel. Thus, this paper discusses minimally invasive approaches to tooth preparation when using bonded ceramic restorations.
