Hi Nick, 
 
Veneers are a wonderful choice to repair, reshape or add a lighter color to  stained, broken, uneven or un-esthetic teeth. The most popular veneers are made of lifelike porcelain, while other materials  such as bonding can be very attractive and sometimes more economical. As a conservative alternative, consider orthodontic treatment with clear aligners or braces when teeth are crooked or crowded. Whitening can change the color of even the darkest stained teeth. Usually, the most conservative option is the least invasive option which at the same time gives you the desired result. If a treatment does not give you the result you wish, it is the least desirable choice. Veneer fees vary depending where you live, the experience and qualifications of your dentist, and the complexity of your treatment. Fees range from $100- $750+ for bonding, and $750 to $2500+ for porcelain veneers.
 
In general it is best to share your concerns with your dentist, and they will help you to select the most conservative option for your needs.
 
Enjoy your Veneers!
