Veneers over porcelain crown?

I assume you meant a porcelain crown not a Postlin crown.  You can have a veneer done over a  porcelain crown but the bond will not be a strong and may fracture.  I would just redo the crown.  Better result and more predictable

You Can Have a Porcelain Veneer over a Porcelain Crown

I assume you meant a "porcelain" crown.Yes, you can have a veneer placed over a porcelain crown, but it will not bond as securely as one would on a natural tooth. Another possibility would be to re-make the porcelain crown at the same time as the other porcelain veneers. That way, the laboratory could make them all \match eachother.
