Lumineers and widening your smile

It is difficult to give you an answer, but widening your smile can be done with veneers or lumineers. Lumineers can be applied to widen the appearance of your teeth, lengthen them, or add thickness to them. The end result should be a much more youthful, wider smile that you will be happy with!
