I want to get my smile done. I thought I’d like to get Lumineers, but my dentist said I would need to get Invisalign first. He also said that Lumineers would make my teeth look bulky, so I should get a different brand. Do you agree with his advice?

I agree with your dentist about the Lumineers. They are not your best option. It is important to bear in mind that they are just one brand of porcelain veneers. There are several other brands that are much more aesthetic.
The other advice I’m not so sure about. Generally, you would either get Invisalign or you would get porcelain veneers, but not both, so that part of his advice I’m not sure I agree with. However, it is possible there is some special case that I’m unaware of such as severe crowding. My recommendation is that you get a second opinion.
