Is this mold? How the teeth will actually look with veneers? (photo)

Is it possible to get more than just the pair done?

Veneers May be too destructive unless 8 teeth are done No-Prep

Your best non-invasive option is to just move your teeth into proper position by closing the gap.  Two veneers will make your front two teeth look too big and out of proportion.  You can not do no-prep veneers if you just do 2, 4 or 6 teeth because they would sitck out past the surface of your teeth.  If you do 2,4 or 6 veneers, you will have to drill down the front surface of your teeth which would be aggressive, destructive treatment.You could do 8 no-prep veneers, and you would would not need any enamel drilled off; but this will cost much more than doing orthodontic treatment.  You can do 4 veneers, but you will be losing healthy, natural tooth structure with this option.  Better to keep all of your natural, beautiful enamel and colse the space orthodontically for less cost.

You'd want to do a minimum of 4 teeth (best option 8)

The proportions of your mouth would best be served by doing at least 4 teeth.   Your front teeth are much larger (proportionately than they should be) than your lateral teeth (the teeth next to them).  Honestly 8 teeth will allow you color control and look better.

Hello there,
Veneering only your two front teeth will result in wide, large teeth.  I would recommend veneering four or more teeth for the best aesthetic result. If you are unsure about what to expect, your dentist can create a wax up. This will allow you to see how your teeth are going to look before your teeth are prepped. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

I would suggest a minimum of four veneers. Having only two done will not be aesthetically pleasing. You will appear to have two very large front teeth, rabbit-like.
