as a result of an accident my molars and bicuspids on both sides cracked in half all the way till the roots. Now I have two bridges on both sides: on the left and on the right sides it covers 4 teeth. Bridges were done about 5 years ago. I would like to do veneers now, but I want it to be done a few shades lighter than my original teeth, and not sure what to do about these bridges. Should I get new bridges that are lighter in shade? Or should I get implants instead?
Should I Get Veneers Or Implants?

New Bridge or Implants
I would suggest you see a dentist and determine if you are a candidate for dental implants and evaluate what it will entail. Will you need a bone graft, a sinus lift? You cannot make an informed decision until you have all the information. I would suggest getting a CBCT scan to see "exactly" what kind and how much bone you have and then you can further evaluate what makes the most sense for your particular situation.
