That’s a hard question to answer. You want your veneer to look natural on you rather than looking white white fake. I strongly recommend you select the color with your dentist and discuss any concerns. Best person to help you is the one doing the treatment. Now also your smile may not be as esthetic could be due to position of your teeth. Which braces and whitening may be a better option for you. Once you cut your teeth, you can’t go back and you are very young. Please have a consultation and see what is best for your smile! We all want your smile to last!
All the best!
Congratulations on deciding to get veneers. First off, it is important to know that you are getting some type of porcelain veneers as these are the ones that will resist staining the best. When picking out a color, you have to look at the size of your smile (how many teeth show), which teeth you are putting veneers on (top, bottom, and how far back you will go). If you do not do all the teeth in your smile line, when someone makes you laugh you may see a difference which will make the teeth with veneers look fake. So, you have a choice: 1) get veneers on all the teeth in your smile line or 2) match the shade of the teeth in your smile line that you are not getting veneers on. Also, do not forget about your lower teeth. When people do the upper teeth and forget about the lower ones, you may be able to see a difference.
Hope this helps.
My best to you!

You can't bite into anything. You have to floss the gumline area. There are different ways teeth can be prepared for vaneers. If your tooth's incisal edge is going to be removed you would want to know it. Keeping your vaneers clean. Floss and brush them like you take care of your own teeth. Anything taken care of will last.
