What's done to prepare for porcelain veneers?

I'm thinking about getting porcelain veneers since I'm really just unhappy with my teeth, and I want my smile just to look a lot better. Is the process for getting them painful? What is my dentist going to do to prepare my teeth for them?

There is no prep veneer or prep veneer. Depends from your tooth position and bite.
The procedure is not painful, and there are different types of procedures for different types of veneers.

It isn’t painful. We remove about .8 of a mm from the front of the tooth. The veneers are then bonded to the front of the tooth. They can be made in any color or shape. If your teeth are in good shape but not in the right position you can also do orthodontics and that may be less costly.
Preparation of teeth for veneers vary considerably depending upon the various problems being corrected. For most porcelain veneers an egg shell thick layer of enamel is removed, molds are taken and provisional veneers are placed. The molds are sent to a dental laboratory where a technician will make the veneers with his specialized equipment. Good luck. Some dentists make better looking veneers than others.
