The risks of iatrogenic actions when we apply therapies to the tooth itself, or to collateral teeth, are potentially high when combined with low sensitivity and specificity of our diagnosis tools. There are therapeutic tools, both for the occlusal and proximal surfaces, in the form of infiltration products, specific inserts for cavity preparation, a fluorescent camera for magnification and early detection, and others; however, preservation of the natural tooth aesthetics also requires early detection of the carious lesion, associated with comprehensive patient care so that our therapies are perpetuated. The purpose of this article is to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of minimally invasive dental techniques, distinguishing those that preserve or reinforce the enamel and enamel-dentine structures (MIT1) from those that require minimum preparation of the dental tissues (MIT2). The discussion is rounded off by an illustration of how the natural tooth aesthetics are preserved in two clinical cases.
