I fell last week and chipped my front tooth. It isn’t a huge chip, but I would like to find a way to fix it that I can afford. My dentist insists Lumineers are the best way to fix it, but I can’t afford that. Surely there are other options. He says there are, but they won’t last as long or be as good.

It frustrates me when dentists insist on a treatment while there are other viable options available. While it is true that Lumineers will last longer, it is not true that another solution won’t look as good.
Plus, when it comes to porcelain veneers, the Lumineers brand isn’t the standard of beauty. There are much better brands that an experienced cosmetic dentist would know to recommend.
However, if you go to an artistic cosmetic dentist, he or she can use dental bonding to restore your tooth.
