I would recommend getting a comprehensive exam and making sure your back teeth don't have problems and that you don't have periodontal disease.  For your smile, I would recommend a gingivectomy on the front 4 teeth, between the canines to raise the gum line.  Then I would have your teeth whitened to the color you want.  Then I would put crowns on the teeth between the canines.  I don't like veneers because the retention is not as good as crowns.  Crowns are also stronger and longer lasting.  Remember that whitening systems don't whiten crowns and fillings which is why I would do it before the crowns.
