There are times when a patient will tell you:

1) I know I have hypomineralization on this tooth, but I’ve had it my whole life.  So you don’t have to reduce it, please don’t as I want as much of my tooth structure as possible.
2) I know this tooth is darker than the tooth in front of it, but please use a lighter shade in case I decide to bleach it in the future.
3) And then, because of #1 and #2 as well as a minimally invasive approach, things don’t always blend look as pretty as you want.
