No veneers on bottom teeth?
My dentist said we don’t usually put veneers on bottom teeth, though they can do it. I’m wondering if I don’t do the veneers, won’t my smile be obviously different between the top and bottom?

I’m surprised your dentist didn’t give you all the information. While it is true that we don’t usually put veneers on your bottom teeth, that is because you can generally just do teeth whitening to match the veneers on your top teeth. Generally, that is sufficient.
All that being said, cosmetic dentistry is about what you want your smile to look. Maybe teeth whitening won’t be enough if there are spacing issues or they’re crooked. We want you to love your smile. So, if you want them, you can have them.
