I would take your question and ask it on a site like Dentaltown which is more geared to answer that type of question.  I think you need more CE if you need help.

My understanding is that this is a forum for dental patients, NOT DENTISTS!

I sincerely believe that you should NOT be doing "Cosmetic Dentistry" without the proper continuing education, including "hands-on courses", and "practice, practice, practice!

Completely agree with my previous colleague! This is the forum for patients, not for the dentists. And based on the types of questions that you`re asking, you definitely shouldn`t do any aesthetic work! How you`re planning to replace the crowns with veneers? You definitely need to get more education before you will start to treat such patients!
