I have chipped my front tooth. I want to fix it, but I want the best treatment available. I’m planning on doing a complete upgrade on my smile and I don’t want a cheap fix for my chipped tooth to miss that up. Cost isn’t a factor.

If you are going to remake your smile completely, then I suggest you fix the chipped tooth at the same time. Porcelain veneers are the best option for completely remaking your smile. Fortunately, they can also fix a chipped tooth.
The one thing you want to be careful about is in choosing your cosmetic dentist. You want it to be someone with lots of technical skill and an artistic eye.
Any general dentist can call themselves a cosmetic dentist, because there is no specialty in cosmetic dentistry. You’ll have to make sure you get a dentist who really knows what they’re doing. Ask to see some of their previous work with porcelain veneers.
