Not really...: The fabrication of dental prosthetics requires time, skill, and money. There's an art to making them look just right, and the investment you will be making in your appearance is designed to last a long time. There really are no shortcuts. Veneers are usually cosmetic in nature, and if that is your case, it's something worth saving for.

Lumineers: restorations are an excellent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth. They also do not require the removal of tooth structure and less expensive. Ask your dentist if you are a good candidate.

Did you ever?: Did you ever hear the sayings, "you get what you pay for" and "you can't have your cake and eat it too"?
There are methods to make some cosmetic improvements without having to go through the expense of porcelain laminate veneers. However, nothing compares to quality veneers by a competent dentist and dental lab in those circumstances when they are indicated as the best aesthetic alternative.
