I'm sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your results. I would suggest speaking with your dentist right away about your concerns. After veneers are placed there is a limited amount of reshaping that can be done. Your dentist may be able to slightly reshape them and adjust the length to your liking. I always tell people to judge the dentist on the quality of the before and after photos of their actual patients. This will give you a pretty good indication about what you can expect. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

It would be very helpful to see photos of your teeth in order to give you an opinion. Also, call your dentist, express your concerns, and have them take a look. Best of luck.
