Veneer too thick
Sorry for the situation. Definitely the thickness, contour has to be checked before the veneer is cemented. Also I am concerned about the material and color match of the tooth from the pictures. Since these are your front two teeth, it is best to make sure an expert cosmetic dentist doing the work.
Best of luck.

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a less than stellar experience up to this point. The best advice I can give is to speak with your dentist about your concerns with both veneers. Be specific about what you want for your new veneers and be sure that okay the shape and shade of your new veneers before having them permanently cemented. Veneers come in all shapes, sizes and shades, so it's important that you and your dentist discuss your expectations beforehand. I always recommend really analyzing before and after photos of actual patients of the doctor that you are considering when choosing your dentist. Any dentist that has done hundreds or thousands of these cases should have at least 10 to 20 great before and after photos. You may find a doctor that says they're the best, but before and after photos will give you a good indication of what you can expect. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

With veneers there should always be a process where you can view the temporary veneers and get an idea of what the final will look like before the final veneers are placed.
Artistry involves beginning with the end in mind. Every veneer done should espouse to this approach . Discuss with your dentist if they can fabricate temporary veneers for you so you can get to see how they look or feel before finalizing
All the best
I am sorry that you had this experience. It is obvious from the photos that the veneers are not cemented correctly. There is a thick white line in between the veneers and the teeth, indicating the cement is exposed. Both of the Veneers should be redone, and there should be no visible cement in between the Veneer and The teeth.
This is it a very simple fix and can be done in a matter of a few days.
