Options to Cover or Remove the Discoloration of Teeth Without Spending Too Much

You can consider doing a  "bonding" or composite filling, sometimes is also called a composite veneer. It really dependes how much of the tooth needs to be covered and the discoloration. Teeth bonding is done with a composite resin that can restore both aesthetics and function to your smile. Placed on both the front and back of teeth, the composite resin used in teeth bonding provides a strong, long-lasting, and seamless appearance to smiles impacted by decay or marred by cosmetic imperfections.

Because it is placed over your tooth, it strengthens the surface of your tooth while preserving your smile’s natural appearance. Colored and shaped to precisely match adjacent teeth, composite resin is unnoticeable, and provides for a seamless, natural looking smile.

Teeth bonding also requires very little of your natural tooth to be removed for these procedures, allowing more of your natural tooth to be preserved. Moreover, teeth bonding is done in one office visit, making it a much simpler and faster procedure. It will discolor with time , but it is a great affordable option that will look great and make you feel great.

Improving the smile discoloration

There are different types and depth of discolorations. The close-up pictures would help. If the stain and discoloration is superficial, it can be corrected with special polishing by general dentist. You can try KOiR whitening. However, veneers give the most stable optional result with satisfying aesthetics. The best way for you will be to save some money to do the procedure that will give you long-lasting results.

Sorry, hard to answer your question without seeing high quality close-up photos of your teeth. Bleaching and Bonding MIGHT be an option. However, remember that what you are looking for is "optional" cosmetic services. If you want the cosmetics to look really good, be prepared tp pay for it!

Without seeing photos of your teeth I can not definitely say if bleaching and or bonding would work, but that would be your best alternatives and more affordable than veneers.  Find a good cosmetic dentist and see if these techniques would achieve your goals.

What are my option beside veneers or invisalign?

If your only problem is discoloration you could consider tooth whitening or bleaching another option is bonding where a tooth colored composite is placed over your teeth but options less expensive than ortho or veneers. Good Luck

Ask your dentist about Bleaching

Bleaching can be on of the options but you need to check with your dentist. Bleaching can provide change of shade/color or reduce discoloration. You might need comprehensive approach and definitely it is economical option comparing to vaneers but it will not change shape and position of teeth.
