I’ve fallen and got a small chip on my front tooth. My dentist is suggesting I use Lumineers to fix it. That is very expensive for such a small chip. Are my choices cleaning out my savings account or living with the chip?

This is a massive overtreatment for a small chip. I am not sure why your dentist is recommending such an expensive treatment, when it can easily be fixed with some dental bonding, which costs significantly less.
Generally, Lumineers are for a smile makeover. They can change the shape, size, and color of your teeth. If you were needing that kind of change to your teeth then I would say his recommendation is reasonable.
Because you just have a small chip, I think you are being taken advantage of. I suggest you go to a different dentist for this treatment.
