Veneers & composites; can I get composites on top to achieve a fuller look?

I'm sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your veneers. Placing composite over them is not the answer. Composite chips and stains easily, so placing composite over your porcelain veneers would not be a long term solution to fix your smile. The best advice I can give is to speak with your dentist about your concerns. Depending on the number of veneers you've had done, it may be possible to do more veneers to achieve a "fuller" look (veneering your premolars). If you opt to have your veneers replaced to achieve the look you're going for, be sure that you are happy with them before having them permanently cemented. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

How many teeth did you get veneers placed on?
It may be possible to just re-treat the premolars which I'm assuming would be four teeth in your case. If you haven't already veneered all the premolars, then you need to add the two premolars on each side which could be fabricated to broaden the smile.
