I’ve never been happy with my smile and my dentist knows that. He recently got certified in Lumineers and has offered me a discount to place them becuase he is fairly new. Even with the discount it is still more than I was expecting. Do you think Lumineers will fix my smile? They’re chipped and yellowed.

I have a real hesitation to tell you to go through with this. It doesn’t take much to become a Lumineers certified dentist. You just pass an exam showing you understand how it works. There is no checking for technique or artistry.
Your dentist admittedly isn’t very experienced. If you’re hesitant with the discount, what will happen if you hate the Lumineers? They’re permanent. Will your dentist give you a refund or pay for you to get them re-done by someone else?
Lumineers can fix chipped and yellowed teeth, but so can dental bonding and teeth whitening, which are much less expensive. I would talk with him further.
