Opaque Veneers

Cosmetic work is truly one of the more difficult parts of dentistry.  You should do your research and make sure you see a dentist that is very experienced with cosmetics prior to having any treatment.  That being said, if you are unhappy with the results, go back to your dentist and discuss how you feel with your dentist.  Don't be afraid to voice your opinion.  They do look a little opaque and more grey in the photo.

Porcelain veneer color match


The difference in color between the porcelain veneers and your natural teeth could be due to two factors.  

1.  Color of the porcelain veneers

2.  Cement shade used under the veneers

In any case I suggest for you to return to your dentist and and voice your concern.
