Porcelain veneer over new crown with dental implant.

Veneer over implant crown
Porcelain veneers do have a higher translucency than crowns in general. Veneers can match crowns very closely; especially when they are done simultaneously by and excellent cosmetic dentist and ceramicist.
I am not a fan of placing a veneer over an existing crown. Do you know if the implant/crown has a metal substructure? (core or coping). Also, the type of abutment (post) that is attached to the implant is important in this equation. Is the abutment titanium or zirconia? I would approach this issue carefully and get an expert opinion by a skilled and experienced cosmetic dentist.

Veneer over crown? #DrSoftTouch
This would not be the best solution. An experienced cosmetic dentist should easily be able to place a crown and a veneer side by side without a noticeable difference between the two. I would recommend having the crown replaced to achieve a better cosmetic result. I hope this helps. Click save on the save button below my name, so that you may ask me more questions in the future.
Veneer over crown
This is not an ideal answer to your problem. There is no guarantee that the outcome will be more aesthetic and it will be weaker. The best answer is to cut the crown off and start again.
