I would recommend just going into any area dentist's office to get them to clean the tooth and re-cement the Lumineer for you.  This would keep if from being so likely to fall off again.  While super glue will work well, it is not advised because if you do not place the Lumineer on completely perfectly, it will be stuck in that position and the doctor will have to destroy it to correct it.  You don't want to cost yourself much more money.  I hope this helps.  Follow me on RealSelf for more questions and answers.

Do not use any permanent glue to recement dental work

Do not attempt to reglue a Lumineer at home!  You should visit a cosmetic dentist on an emergency basis to have this recemented.  The bonding of a Lumineer requires special techniques that can be negatively affected by the wrong choice of temporary glues.

Lumineer and Veneer cementation

Hello Noura,.
Please do not use any glue yourself. It must be done an cosmetic dental expert using many different sequences and materials, it is not just one glue its many glues. You have to prepare the tooth and the porcelain differently. Maybe the design was not done correctly, because veneers are very strong and do not come off. Since I have no photo I can't tell how the underlying tooth looks like. In any case, sorry for the bad experience you have, veneers are meant to be maintenance free with no hassle. Please post another photo.
