I would recommend seeing your dentist for a complete evaluation. He/she will thoroughly examine your veneers and determine the need for replacement. The procedure of replacing veneers involves removal of the veneer, possible recontouring of the tooth surface, taking a new impression and fabrication of temporaries. You'll wear temporary veneers while the lab fabricates your new veneers. At my office this usually takes 1-2 weeks. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Removal and new veneer fabrication is very similar to your initial procedure. Preparation would include removal of the veneers and immediate fabrication of temporary veneers to allow time for your dentist to send digital or standard molds to their laboratory to have their ceramist fabricate porcelain veneers for bonding on a different date.
