The increased emphasis on orofacial esthetics, experienced both by dental professionals and the lay public, results in an environment where overtreatment can easily occur. Patients on the one hand feel pressure from esthetic norms that are often unrealistic, while dental professionals are compelled to deliver immediate results many times without considering what is best for the ill-informed patient. This article is an illustrated cautionary tale against overtreatment disguised as esthetic dentistry. Representative clinical examples illustrate how porcelain veneers are used without following sound operatory principles, as well as how these cases have been resolved. © 2021 Wiley Periodicals LLC.
